Teetotaler Policeman Poem by Saiom Shriver


The policeman stood behind the bar
waiting for those who, with the
bathroom full, would come out
back to relieve themselves. He
then arrested several
and sent them to jail for 3 days
for 'urination in public'.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Footnote:
Over one half of the people in federal
prisons are there for nonviolent offenses,
many for drug use. Each costs over $40,000
a year to the government, not to mention
the increased cost to state governments
from the family busting policies of
the narco state.
