Oh Little Plant of Green

by AP

Why do they condemn thee
Oh little plant of green.
Your buds are meant for healing
Yet you've caused such a scene!

We watch you battle cancer,
and fight against HIV,
But still these men deny you,
And this a crime should be.

For when you are inhaled,
The spasms begin to cease.
When thoughts become disturbing,
You put the mind at ease.

Unlike other drugs,
That hurt and harm the body,
You do no such thing,
But instead improve the psyche!

For when we look to science,
We expect to find the facts.
But time and time again,
Ignorance throws us off our tracks!

So one day it may be,
That the truth is finally seen.
You are but only medicine,
Oh little plant of green.
