A Few Autonomous Flower Children and Demonisation in Gottingen

Cannabis sativa plant

The other weedy story today was about the spread of Himalayan Balsam ….. This is more interesting!

Gone To Pot

A Few Autonomous Flower Children
had finally recognised,
seen through their own eyes
marijuana was demonised
they needed to mobilise
and struck whilst the iron was hot.

A Few Autonomous Flower Children,
just plain old vanilla
garden guerrillas,
green space fillers,
modern-day tillers
hitting Gottingen in the sweet spot.

A Few Autonomous Flower Children
all had agreed
that there was a need
to scatter the seed
of the infamous weed
making Gottingen a centre for pot.

A Few Autonomous Flower Children,
from the news that I read,
did intercede.
They acted with speed
and did the dire deed
and guess what Gottingen’s got.

Cannabis here, cannabis there,
cannabis plants everywhere,
lots to go round, plenty to share,
in parks, in containers, what do we care.
It’s even growing in the town square.
Yes Gottingen’s gone to pot.

21st July 2013 – headline from the Daily Mail

Notes:  “Cannabis plants spring up all over German town after campaigners plant thousands of seeds in protest against the ‘demonisation’ of the drug.”  Supporters of the group A Few Autonomous Flower Children spread several kilograms of seeds around the university town of Gottingen last month.  They say they are protesting its ‘demonisation’ in Germany’s ‘restrictive drug laws’.  A website shows dozens of photos of the cannabis plants blooming in public parks, allotments, gardens and window boxes all over town – with some even growing outside the local police station.
