Weed of wisdom
Written by Selvin ‘Ewan’ McRae /

Some call it herb
Others call it ganja
Some call it pot
Others call it di chronic
Some call it marijuana
But for us, it is the weed of wisdom

Allowing us to hear the unhearable
Allowing us to see the unseeable
Allowing us to smell the odorless
Allowing us to touch the untouchable
Letting us taste the untasteable
For us, we taste the weed of wisdom

Herb burning in a rizzla
Ganja burning in a chalice
Pot burning in a bong
Chronic burning in a blunt
Marijuana burning in a pipe
Trees burning, is the weed of wisdom

Natural act of god
Natural plant of the earth
Natural for one to farm
Natural for one to enjoy what they farm
Love, for one to share from their farm
Yet, it’s against the law to share the weed of wisdom

Some seek and shop for understanding
Others seek and shop for education
Some seek and shop for knowledge
Others seek and shop for joy
Some seek and shop for health
But with the weed of wisdom, we got it all

They have elementary
They have middle schools
They have high schools
They have colleges
Even universities
But for us, we have the weed of wisdom
What’s your wisdom?

    weeds grow anywhere..and mostly costs nothing but other weeds or hay are useful as they use them in the dairy or poultry or any farm...maryjane is a special class of weeds..growers find money out of it.

    when u wanted to excel...use it
    when u wanted to fly, smoke it
    when u wanted to feel happy,

    NOT NECESSARY to use weeds as the source of wisdom..we can have it without destroying ourselves..actually, this piece is nice..presentable and educational... (Report) Reply

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
