    This is written in response to a tragic accident involving 5 children left alone to die in a fire while their father went to the store to buy cigarettes.




    Motivated by anger
    How dare you place your kids in danger?
    To support a habit
    A pack of cigarettes, did you really need to have it?
    Is that more important than doing your job?
    But instead you let Death steal and rob
    Locking those poor kids in the house while you go get your smoke
    Do you think parenthood is just a big joke?
    Didn’t know space heaters would overload and start to burn
    Now you have a very difficult lesson to learn
    Kids couldn’t escape, if you had been there they may have survived
    How dare you have the audacity to leave them, the oldest child was only five
    You come walking down the street, realizing your place is no more
    Now you have to tell the mother you killed the kids she adored
    She at work trying to make a better life for the little ones
    You ruined that dream, you might as well killed them with a loaded gun.
    No smoke detectors in the place
    And that is truly a disgrace
    For 5 dollars you could have got what you need
    Brother man, human services gives the detectors away for free
    But you get away with a minor charge of neglect
    Yet the memory you will never forget
    So even though you are free and not behind bars
    you will never escape the scars
    that will be etched in your mind
    to haunt and torture you for all time

    I am the Watcher I watch every thing you do
    So be forewarned Watcher is always watching you.
