Rallying for Legalization on 4/20

A green cloud descended on the park.
The crowd shuffled and smoked and meandered
and smoked and shuffled and smoked

Old heads and young blood
tough guys and hippies
girls of all shapes and sizes

guys too
dogs too
and every once in a while you might see a baby in a stroller

guys and dogs and babies of all shapes and sizes

a constant scent of weed in the air
every one here has cotton mouth

unmanned drones scan the crowd from above
security guards on tall scaffolding
armed to the teeth
helicopters frequently circle the park
fences circle the park
cops circle the park

deviance and good Samaritan-ism
face to face

the hall monitors vs the kids from detention
the free spirits vs the straight and narrows

Over the Public address system a man says: “You are standing on some of the freest soil in America right now”

He said it from behind a riot fence and a wall of bullet proof glass
with a fence holding all the freedom lovers in one area
subject to searches on the way in AND out

it feels like they are laughing at us
the hula-hoopers and the hare krishnas
the skaters and the punks
the gangsters and the just plain crazy
the self-medicated
the deviants
aren’t we all?
