Asking For Trouble
Poetry by Lance Landall

Your brain is very precious, in fact, it’s actually you, For your brain’s where your mind is, your personality too. And also your character, yes, the person you’ve become, So, when it comes to drugs, friend, I wouldn’t bother, wouldn’t succumb.

Don’t ever play with your mind, don’t ever mess with your brain, For that’s your control centre, and what you wreck, you don’t regain. Be it marijuana, heroin, LSD, ‘P’ or cocaine, For your sanity sake, and your health sake, you should refrain.

Take note of what drugs have done, and learn from others’ mistakes, Or, if using them already, free yourself, hit the brakes! For sooner or later, friend, taking drugs will cripple you, They’re mind wreckers, life wreckers, and society harm too.

In your mind is where you live, and your whole life you’ll spend there, Thus, should you wreck that place, friend, you’ll have reason for despair. It’s a crazy thing to do — that’s right — it’s insanity, For who would destroy their home — their brain — voluntarily?

Your brain’s designed to give you, a lifetime of normal use, But it will fail to give that, if it suffers such abuse. You’ll find that certain functions, won’t deliver what’s required, That your fling with taking drugs, has horribly backfired.

Plus, while drug pushers grow rich, you, friend, will simply grow poor, And, as your addiction grows, you’ll seek out those pushers more. Soon hooked, broke, and circle bound, you may turn to crime to find Money for your addiction, and those masters of your mind.

Yes, you’ll soon become a slave, just a puppet on a string, Who’s just feathering the nest, of some pusher, or drug king. You’ll just hurt the ones you love, bring them misery and shame, And also have to live with, knowing you’re the one to blame.
