Levers of Release Levels of Deceit

Federal Agents find what they’re reaching for
from the hands of the helpless
who reach for levers of release
while
living in the captivity of a limited life
they choose
H2O or THC
then
scientists reach their foregone conclusion in collusion
with
a
state, of mind, that encloses these souls, behind windowless rooms
to
zoom
into
the news
that
Pot is Addictive!

Federal scientists addicted to funding, find, that, out
out
at this National Institute of Abuse, unaware of instinctual or intuitive behavior
but
very aware of institutional behavior
that
rewards party lines that lead to party lies

Put four monkeys, without a key into a cage
with a tube in their veins, to test, if they’d, turn on
when
a light in their prison comes on
their choice
water or weed
just
what does that mean?

Squirrel Monkeys in a nutty experiment
in a federal la…boooorrrrrre…atory
they
labor in vain, what a shame on U.S.
no labor laws in laboreatories
lights on, what would you do?
water or weed
how much H20 per hour do you need, in a cell all alone
an hour’s a lifetime
when you’re tied to a tube
the lever they leave you,
never allows you to leave

So you press through their nightmare, press for relief
your thirst for some ease
is their proof of your need
for
weed!?
So wicked, their addiction, to dealing us hands?

So strung out these puppets of partying policy
policing our people based on studies like these
do they believe we’ll believe
that
these Squirrel Monkeys, if living life free
would swing from tree to tree
in search of their need for our weed
right on to your balcony
into your room

They will go, policing our identities
where will this war on drugs lead,
from a
monkey in a cage, to a man in his room
to a
man in a cage, making minimum wage

Journeying from the Journal of Nature Neuroscience
this pseudoscientific tale, makes a last grasp exhalation
for
withholding this seed
while
attempting to steal its ripening appeal
