Oddly, doing more of what fails, still fails


The latest group to call for the prospect of legalizing narcotics is El Paso's City Council.

Out in the west Texas town of El Paso,
they wrote a request to legalize drugs.
"Hell, no!" the Mayor said, "Not in this lifetime.
"Dudes getting high? I'll take Mexican thugs."

Meanwhile, the prisons are swelling with stoners,
while usage continues untrammeled somehow.
Odd how it took a full blown Amendment
to bring Prohibition, but not so much now.

So at last, here I am in El Paso,
watching the border through hotel window.
Drugs and illegals pour through it unhindered,
cash heading back to poor doomed Mexico.
