Lethal Weapon

Lethal weapon

There’s a lethal weapon
Gleaming bright
Deadly as dynamite

There’s a lethal weapon
Hold on tight
Safety off
Death’s in sight

There’s a lethal weapon
Guessed it right?
It’s you in your car
On the road tonight


We can repair wrecked cars
We can’t repair wrecked lives
We can replace wrecked cars
We can’t replace dead children, brothers, sisters, husbands, wives…

Poems by David Midmer in memory of his son Nathan, killed aged 22 on 23 December 2000. A pedestrian, he was struck and run over by a car.
