Effective Monday, November 2, there will be a proportional Federal tax on all Liquor sales, the Treasury Department announced recently. --Boston Herald, October 28.
Farewell, all ye punches,
ye liquified lunches,
ye parties of cocktailed society;
upon post exam binges
the war now impinges
a life of the strictest sobricty.
The delicate sipper,
the raw seasoned tippler,
will parch in a nutural frustration;
barcardis like satin
are part of a lost generation.
this cyclic condition;
while Temperance Unionites blubber
of morals and livers.
the taxpayer shivers,
and gin becomes synthetic rubber.
