A Quote by Franklin Pierce Adams on crime, prohibition, vices, and worth

Prohibition is an awful flop. We like it. It can't stop what it's meant to stop. We like it. It's left a trail of graft and slime It don't prohibit worth a dime It's filled our land with vice and crime, Nevertheless, we're for it.

Franklin Pierce Adams (1881 - 1960)
