Prohibition In The USA

Prohibition began one hundred years ago in the USA.

People had their right to drink booze taken away.

This made people unhappy and they began to whine.

And this caused Al Capone to start peddling moonshine.

Capone was evil and because of him, people were killed.

On December 5 1933, the 18th Amendment was repealed.

People were very happy because prohibition came to an end.

They were as giddy as school girls to have the right to drink again.
