Fair to middlin'
This is the day the world tips its hat to Marijuana.
In some States you can smoke it legal if ya wanna.
Some people will spend today
educating about its medicinal properties,
while others of its evils preach
and of addictions teach.
A whole lotta people haviní their way,
breaking their bud out at parties,
getting high and feeling good,
putting the hurt on some serious food.
If I get to have my say,
of preferences of varying degrees,
drunks get loud, fight and fall asleep, a stoner is more apt to get dry, hungry and deep.
But it isnít about the high anyway,
probably hasnít been since the Nineteen Twenties,
itís about power and greed
and who profits what from that weed.
Sad to think corporations want to take it away
from the little Mom & Pop companies
that would grow the middle class
and save our economic ass.
