I met my Match,
I thought something was fishy,
She was the perfect catch,
Still stand tall in the Field,
It's a competitive Patch,
Left me on the fence swaying in the wind,
She rose up and released the latch.
Thwack, thwack, thwack,
On and off the fence as I swayed front and back,
Why don't I fit in with the other guys?,
Integrity and Strength are nothing I lack,
I can carry the weight of the world when I'm Sewn into a Sack,
I'm all Natural and Organic,
I make her Soil Fertile, no need to Frak.
My kin were reaching great heights but I stood taller,
I towered over Acres so she yelled out loud,
"You're made of a Stalk long like an NBA baller."
Looking around as far as the eye can see,
I realized the only Male here, is ME!!,
Right in the middle, I was Planted firmly,
She placed me there for my Fertility,
Before long the farm looked like a Nursery,
In just one day I created Acres of magical babies.
She Nurtured me with her warmth,
Knowing, I would wither and turn orange if not Sun-Kissed,
One million uses: Clothing, Food, Rope, Homes, Cars, Medicine, Biofuel, Feed, Planes, Plastic, Batteries, Drinks, and Microchips,
Check, check, check off your list.
I swerve while Rooted in place like Hip Hop,
I've been dancing and Rocking crowds long before my close cousin with Hippies at Woodstock,
I Jazz up the place and open many locks,
I'm Classical and Timeless, no need for a clock,
I don't get old, I get better and petrify like a Rock,
I don't Wear out, I Wear in like a Glove or a Sock.
I am the Cannabis Industrial Hemp Plant, not a Person or a Tree,
I clean the Water, Air, and Soil 4X more effectively,
Let me take Root and I'll grow Industry,
My Fibres alone can create jobs and economy,
I can build stronger Homes and Feed the Needy,
Ironically, I am Literally, the Fabric of United States Liberty,
I have sailed across EVERY Sea,
Canvassing the entire Planet, embracing New World Discovery,
Unanimously and Organically, I am Woven into EVERY part of World History!
I am: Wagon covers, Nooses that hung Witches, first to pull Elevators, the first Origami, Ninja training obstacles, the reason Vikings stayed afloat, Emperor's Robes, the first pair of Blue Jeans, the first Industry, the first Rope, the first Paper, Buddha survived solely off my Seeds, I am Constitutional and until the early 1900's ALL United States Government Documents were printed on MY Papers!
The fact that they hold several Patents, ruined thousands of lives, allow children to suffer, lied about my Roots and Cause to keep me hidden for nothing more than Greed is the World's greatest Caper!
I have: Caused Wars, Discovered new Settlements, Grown a Car from the Soil, Declared the Independence of a great Nation, sucked up Radiation, swung performers across Stages in grand Theaters, established trade and shipping routes, and I was coveted by ALL Ancient Societies!
I paid Taxes, was traded around the Globe, calmed a Queen's Menstrual Cycle, secured packages, Clothed tribes and villages, and until roughly 1900 I was the World's most Common and Valuable Commodity!
Presidents, Kings, Emperors, Slaves, Scientists, Industrial Giants, Sumo Wrestlers, Ninjas, Soldiers, Napoleon and George Washington ALL wore me!
From Vikings to Romans to Christopher Columbus. Since the dawn of Humanity, I was the World's most Common and Valuable Commodity!
I hold more value than what is printed on my face,
Aliens covet my virtues from deep space,
For decades they have investigated our case,
They recommend we make a change of pace,
Plant new Seeds and clean up the place.
With great love for the Miracle Hemp Plant,
