Divine Bootlegger (Smokey and the Bandit)

Is this not the spirit of America,
driving fast and reckless –
looking good, feeling good,
speeding past all pursuit?

How far have our fathers fallen,
who once understood this spirit
(and saw in themselves a Bandit)
to now demand we bow,
obedient, servile, quietly
at the boots of Justice?

It is our place to misbehave when
proper conduct is a farce,
it is our place to break these notions
when the laws are made only to
bind our hands.
