Carry A Nation Haiku

Nice tavern you’ve got.

Filled with husbands getting smashed.

Shame if IT were smashed.

Carry (or Carrie) A Nation started her career of smashing drinking establishments with a hatchet 119 years ago today in Kiowa, Kansas. (Okay, she started with rocks, but still.) She said she was told to by Jesus, but I think the fact that her first husband died after less than a year of marriage due to his alcoholism had more to do with it. Eventually, she realized that she had become marketable and started selling tiny hatchets to her fans.
