I disagree with ALL of the previous responses. I don't think any of them got it at all. I'm 99% positive that the last line is not the punch of the poem--it's the "punch line". Your intent is sarcastic, why else would you be praising the shaman?
The poem itself is good, but I'd like some info on your target audience, because the poem seems to be in favor of drug use.
I critique poems. I don't feel right judging them, but this one doesn't exacty sit right with me.
Just my $.02. From an artistic point of view, it is a good write, though.
I believe the most important component of a poem is rhythm. Rhythm is the heartbeat of a poem. It is what makes poetry poetry.
