The fine poetry inspired me:

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's filled our land with vice and crime

It don't prohibit worth a dime

Nevertheless, we're for it.

Franklin Adams, 1931

Well, it's not Emily Bronte... :D

But, the poem makes a good point.
