The young man who was my neighbor was one without fear
One who always felt happy with danger to him near
The bravest young person by far in the Town
From the most dangerous challenge he would not climb down
To take risks in life one who was always game
One who lived up to 'Fearless' his given nickname
One who reveled in danger he liked to live in this way
Men like him do seldom live for to grow old and  gray
He took one risk too many and took it too far
And he died  at the wheel of his very fast car
And almost instantaneous  his life came to an end
When he failed to slow at a very tight bend
Not yet in his life's prime he had only lived for twenty years
And his parents and sister and his girlfriend for him in tears.
