High Anxiety

Under the spell of the trailing smoke
Following wherever I could Bogart some tokes
It’s alright for drug addicts but I’m just a man
Hitting it for anxiety, “Ere” was the grand plan

  1. Medical use? Pass the dutchie.


  2. I bet it’s a lot cheaper than therapy. :o) I like this poem!


  3. I like that this isn’t just about getting high. It’s also nicely written.

    Good luck!
