IT'S REALLY COMICAL

Tonight's blog...it's been quite a while, I know, but I'm here now.  Anyway, this is the last thing I ever thought I'd write about but what prompts a poem is never predictable.  I recently heard of a new product that's been tauted as marijauna without the THC, a great pain reliever, no side effects. As far as I'm concerned, anything that would address my pain and would be better than an opioid is worth taking a look at. So I went to a pharmacy in Little Chute to get more information.  I just began limited use and the jury  is still out.
I'll let you know...

POT
By Patty Lynn

I wonder if you've tried the thing they often call “a joint?”
You heard me right, I really need to know to make my point.
Why do I need to know, you ask, why do I need to know?
Because I never have, though once, I smelled the afterglow.

The story of just how I did is really rather comical.
The man I worked for liked to “smoke" whenever it was possible,
But since I didn't know the smell, I didn't recognize it
Co-workers said they always knew; I guess that verifies it.

You see, I cleaned the bathrooms, ‘cause I liked them to be clean.
I smelled a smoky smell in there that wasn't nicotine.
I mentioned it, got raucous laughs, they asked if I was kidding?
I told them I was serious, they thought that I was fibbing.

It only goes to show I'm not a worldly average Joe..
I've never smoked or rolled a joint so how was I know.
I’ve got to say I'm curious ‘bout pot for pain relief,
If I could ease my pain with it, my source of daily grief…

Why, you can bet I'd learn real fast just how to roll a joint.
I'd revel that somehow it worked and didn't disappoint.
That day will be glorious one, pain gone & feeling good
Medicinal marijuana should be legal, yes, it should.

But I have found the capsule kind that has no THC.
It's legal & I'm trying it and it may work for me.
So at my very “tender age" still wouldn't know the smell,
But that’s OK, maybe someday, I'll smoke it, who can tell.
