This chain letter claims to come from MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Drivers), and asks people to sign an email petition and forward it onto friends and colleagues. However, MADD has denied any connection to the chain letter, and Sophos recommends that users do not bother forwarding the email to others, but simply delete the message.
The text of the chain letter reads as follows:
WENT TO A PARTY, Please read all the way to the bottom and sign your name)
I went to a party,
And remembered what you said. You told me not to drink, Mum
So I had a sprite instead. I felt proud of myself,
The way you said I would, That I didn't drink and drive,
Though some friends said I should. I made a healthy choice,
And your advice to me was right, The party finally ended,
And the kids drove out of sight.
I got into my car, Sure to get home in one piece, I never knew what was
Something I expected least.
Now I'm lying on the pavement,
And I hear the policeman say, The kid that caused this wreck was
drunk, Mum, his voice seems far away.
My own blood's all around me, As I try hard not to cry. I can hear the
This girl is going to die.
I'm sure the guy had no idea,
While he was flying high, Because he chose to drink and drive,
Now I would have to die.
So why do people do it, Mum
Knowing that it ruins lives? And now the pain is cutting me,
Like a hundred stabbing knives.
Someone should have taught him, That it's wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his parents had, I'd still be alive.
My breath is getting shorter, Mum
I'm getting really scared. These are my final moments,
And I'm so unprepared.
I wish that you could hold me Mum,
As I lie here and die. I wish that I could say, "I love you,
Mum!" So I love you and good-bye.
