P.J. O'Rourke

The opening incantation of P.J. O'Rourke's new book,
Driving Like Crazy: Thirty Years of Vehicular Hell-Bending:

The feminists grabbed our women,
The liberals banned our guns,
The health cops snuffed our cigarettes,
The bailout has our funds,
The laws of Breathalyzing
Put an end to our roadside bars,
Circle the Fords and Chevys, boys,
THEY'RE COMING TO TAKE OUR CARS.

Now THAT, my friends, is poetry.
