The lady and the joint
Not the type to hide or embellish the plant emblem on her clothing,
Just the type to be engrossing in coping, open to all, never of anyone opposing,
Glowing and smoking, while gleefully blowing support to any, many and plenty,
Not the type to overhype an online persona focusing on 420,
A champion of you do you, I do me, kick back, cut others slack and let’s just be free,
The love for smoke is just honest and open,
Unlike the general masses who love to be bitching, moaning and moping,
Ever hear the expression “They need to get laid”,
Sort of like that, but their uptight opinions need to be looser or swayed,
she always appears to be fine,
Using plants to slow down time,
Closed minds don’t get the reason nor the rhyme,
She inhales, swerving away from her boiling point,
They just can’t understand the lady and the joint.
Robert Potter is an Irish poet, writer and audio engineer living in Dublin.
His first poetry book will be published this summer. He believes writing, music and any creative output are the key to dealing and coping with depression and anxiety. He is also a “lightweight” when it comes to weed so he enjoys only a small toke or two on the weekends to help unwind, or to help gain focus for any/all creative outputs.
