Puff One - Poem by Robert Brendan

No, I don’t smoke weed
I think it makes people into
Do you drink?
Well yes, but not much
You don’t want to lose control.

maybe you shouldn’t smoke so much
you would get so much more
if only you didn’t smoke so
much weed

They might be right
you know
if I didn’t smoke weed
all the time
maybe I would clean
my house
a bit more often
and get my laundry sorted
placed away
a bit more often
and ill bet
that if I didn’t
so much weed
all the fucking time
then Id be so much more
on the ball
getting real important things
like my laundry
and shit taking
