Self Labeled Pothead

Self labeled Pothead

Sittin on the curb 
smoking my herb
A menace to society
a deviant to the propriety

sittin calm cool n collected
while my car is illegally inspected
if found, as little as a seed
I get hit with possession of weed

I could do more time
For possession of a dime
Than someone caught on tape
And convicted of rape

A world of injustices and im caught in between
Cant toke my pipe in fear of being seen
Who has the right to choose for me
Im gonna smoke my herb! just let me be

We are no longer a minority
Infact we may have majority
So let it be known
Theres nothing like home grown

You too have a choice
Let the world hear your voice
I will continue to hit this joint
Just to prove my point!

    Its America.. Land of the FREE .. so if thats what people want to do... it should be legalized so law enforcement can concentrate on larger more serious crimes.. .. as your poem states... when I was in high school I dabbled in it.. made me hungry so since I am a weight fanatic I had to make a choice... no more "rollie smokies" .. thin is in... great job Mike and thankxxx for your great comments on my poetry tonight... luv.. Linda-Marie
