What is it with this ban on smoking,
When outside in the open air?
The mayor must certainly be joking.
Not even in the public square!
Where is the civil libertarian
Will stand against totalitarian
Attacks upon our civil rights?
That’s right… they’re now all socialites.
What is it with preoccupations
That makes us legislate against
Our habits or our natural bents?
That forces us to confrontations
With claims that eminent domain
Is what they say it is? Raise Cain!
