King of Kings of the Road

“Man triumphs in battle for ‘IM GOD’ license plate in Kentucky”
—The Washington Post

When you go driving in Kentucky,
You just might see, if you get lucky,
The atheist who beat the state
In court to win the license plate
IM GOD. It’s just his way to scoff
At faith, but best not cut him off.
