God’s Own Medicine

marijuana_01

I need a doctor

to tend to my blues

send me a physician

who can prescribe

god’s own medicine

a scripture

green and gold

a liturgy

of soft and splendid

fancies

the only elixir

that’s good for the soul

I’m just an old man

trading in second hand dreams

and in the cemetery of hope

some temporary relief

is all we can hope for

.
