Why Blame Drug Cartels: A Satirical Rhyme with Food for Thought

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


One of the hardest things was learning that I was worth recovery.

-- Demi Lovato

I don't smoke, have coffee, or drink

although it's all available by tonnes

I must be wrong the way that I think

imagine, I don't even have any guns.

There are million things I never buy

to me it's just like they don't even exist

those silly commercials don't catch my eye

while none of those things will ever be missed.

I'm not blaming those trying to sell

everyone just wants to make a buck

but they could hang it on church's bell

and with me they won't have a selling luck.

So what are all statistics of overdose dying

always explained as drug trafficking doing

to me it means nothing as I'm not buying

not the kind of happiness I am pursuing.

Thirty thousand yearly deaths being drug related

but ten times more die from all medical mistakes

so it's really futile pondering on everything stated

it's people's mentality with poor willpower brakes.

Weaklings use anything to knock themselves out

without any of this mentioned -- it is simply true

as you probably know what I am talking about

if it's not white powder -- they'll sniff on glue.

Markets tend to supply what's in high demand

as without potheads and alike it would go dead

whether it's legal booze, or opiate of illegal brand

there is always something for a half-conscious head.

So why blame cartels, wineries and other suppliers

and how is Mexican drug deadlier than home made

they simply keep existing because there are buyers

and soon it may become a part of international trade.

So we'll have vodka, coffee, drugs, and beer

proudly coexisting, lined up on same shelves

anything psychoactive to produce some cheer

maybe even to help us to be proud of ourselves.
