Enacted by the Eighteenth Amendment
Prohibition Agents Dump Liquor into a Sewer After a Raid: From the American History online database, in the public domain
Prohibition Poem by Olivia Mosto
The Unpopular Problem That Was the Prohibition
The old drunken man sound asleep,
Awoke to the alarming news that
Alcohol could no longer be in use.
He hoped the time would never come when
He should not swallow the shameful rum.
He jumped right up and ran to town
And saw that his saloon was burned to the ground.
His hatred burned like the flames in the air
And knew that the Anti-Saloon League
Was the disruptive devil he despised.
The Eighteenth Amendment was an attack
On the rights of the individual;
They had crushed his glorious way of life!
What would the old man do without his booze!
