The Plant

One day a plant uprooted and ran.

She wanted to help Earthlings understand.

Across the land she met all kinds.

Many people knew her and had nice things to say.

But others saw her in another way.

You’re a drug, you’re a drug!

Judgmental hypocritical people would say,

as they drank bourbon and played gambling games.

NO, I’m a plant,” she said, “and I’ve been around before time!

And it’s time you got past these decades of lies.”

Yes, I make people feel good, but I do it the very best way.

This needs to be understood, today!”

Alcohol, Cocaine, Heroin and Meth,” she shouted to them as they sat on a bench.

Those guys there are not my friends, but I have to hang with them as a means to an end.

She stood up proudly and said, “A person has never died from smoking too much of me.

In Fact, I’m a medicine, nature’s companion to mankind. I help children, the elderly and

those impaired in the mind.”

My medicine is cheap and can be grown anywhere.”

“I’m supported by artist and leaders who care.”

“I enhance all aspects of the Human condition.

The Mind, The Body and the Spirit.”

Then she heard, “I don’t want to hear it.”

Said by a man who had been drinking.

And drinking too much can damage your thinking.

But his lips began smacking out lies.

“You make kids stupid, you make women crazy!

Crime starts with you. What should I do?

When what you’re saying is not my kind of true.

I don’t want my kids entrapped by your stance.”

And in a drunken rage he pounced toward plant.

But plant knew how to dance.

She side-stepped his violence

and kicked him square center in his pants.

Chill Mister Chill! Your delusions aren’t real.

Take a step with me and come to understand.”

The beaten man took her leafy hand

and agreed.

He was sick from the greed.

Finally abdicating his control.

The fear of change, and a lifetime of miseducation,

With each puff, started to fade away

and plant was here to show him the way.

The man felt peace

and he cared.

His body tingled when he breathed in the air.

He thought of the Earth and the love of a child.

His mind was expanded by 23 miles.

He looked to plant and said, “I never knew.

I’m so sorry I judged you too.”

No Problem,” said plant, “That’s why I am here.

To help earthlings see themselves and get over their fears.

That is my nature that is why I was made.

And I will walk this land till laws against me fade.”

As she walked away a friendly crowd gathered left behind.

Some waved in awe, others cried in bliss

And in one loud voice they said

“We love you Cannabis.”

TANSTAAFL Solutions Mission:Welcome, to TANSTAAFL Solutions. It is our mission to stand against the celebrity corporate cultured mentality and bring back thee virtues of Responsibility, Hard Work and Understanding. T.A.N.S.T.A.A.F.L (There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch) means we get what we pay for. Robert A. Heinlein, in his novel The Moon is a Harsh Mistress wrote,“That anything free costs twice as much in the long run or turns out worthless.” How many worthless things are around today? Ignorance, unjust laws, racism, the GOP. All these things work to degrade a Human soul. Many Earthlings have no clue but because of their numbers, they decide how we should live. TANSTAAFL Solutions will work to voice opposition to what is wrong today. It is time to take responsibility and work for direct action to change. We hope to encourage, entertain and inspire others to join us and amputate the rancid 20th century mentality which has corrupted our time. We believe in a global world culture of Planet Terra and everyone has the right to freedom, equality and to live responsibly in peace. We also understand that any of these goals cannot be achieved without dedication, an effective strategy and the will to work and stand for what is right.
