100 Years Ago

Two years without a drink …
a legal drink.

Two years of ear-to-the-ground
scrounging
for satisfaction.

Two years of watching criminals
make a killing.
Financial killing.
Bloody killing.

Two years since the government
passed judgment on me,
branded me immoral,
removed my choice.

Oh, Lord, bring me back 100 years from now
to 2022
to a reborn America
to freedom of choice.

If things have not changed by then, Lord,
at least let me have a legal drink.
