V is for the villain
who visits our village at night.
To enter, pillage, and kill us
it prowls through absent light.
It creeps in family dwellings,
and opens unlocked doors.
It steal our sons and daughters
and turn them into whores.
Powdered it sniffs up noses.
Liquid it stealths into veins.
The villain catches them any which way
and slowly addles their brains.
The inspiration for this piece is the Montana Meth Project's television commercials depicting the effects of methamphetamine on young people. Visit the website, take a look around. Some of the commercials are posted there. They have had a significant impact on lowering teen drug use in our state.
