Top Shelf

Relax and enjoy, believe you.....me
while the plumes waft up through the air;
you quickly will find,
complete peace of mind,
erasing each primary care.

There's two ways to ingest this plant
baking will entice one to "teethe";
but other than that,
hold onto your hat!
Because then, all one must do is breathe.

Whenever I go to my cabinet
I not only think of myself;
I remember the "lot",
of friends that I've got,
and I decide we deserve the top shelf.

Top Shelf is more than a collective
it's practically a way of life;
it's not even a test,
they're clearly the best,
they make it easy to exit life's strife.

So, be sure to show "pride" when indulging
and especially treat others the same;
Top Shelf is the place,
they'll put a smile on your face,
edibles and chronic, ask for it by name!

Good title and language usage. I enjoyed:

I wonder if I can get my doctor to prescribe it for my depression, lol!

When you fling poo, some of the stink sticks to you!

...it DOES help, and make a huge difference! Either that or, I'm soo way out of it that, I don't care that I'm constantly in pain! L.o.l! It IS better than the alternative....stupified on pills, and booze!
You take care, and thanx for your comments.
Sincerely,
doc.

the line
"There's two ways to ingest this plant"
seems a little awkward to me. otherwise a fun poem; not to be taken too seriously, am i right? i like it.

...I'll revisit that line. I am, however....VERY serious when it comes to taking my medication. (suddenly, an audible "snicker" bubbled-up throatily, and sprang free of it's rib-cage...)
You are a diamond to my eye.
Thanx sincerely,
doc.
