Not Wild Jokerz

by Badger_29

In memory of my nephew, Bruce Gandy Jr.1986-2013
Take a toke
    It’s not a joke
       that when you
         choose to smoke

That you will find
   that your mind
       will never be the same

Step on a crack, 
  break your mother’s back
      but if you smoke crack,
         you’ll break your
           mother’s heart!

Don’t you realize
   that The Lord’s eyes
      are everywhere?
Listen to your inner voice:
   it’s wise, you do have a choice.

You are only dealt one hand in life,
   don’t fill it with drugged jokerz!
      They’re a little too wild,
          (They’re really not mild)
When you call on them,
   they have already made
       many decisions for you
          have given them control
Don’t choose to go into a hole
   that you can
            OUT OF!!!
And please beware 
  of the jokerz friends-
     for although they
       may appear
         to mean well,
           they are in that hole,
and would like very much for you
   to join them there
      but they are
               And CONFUSED
And have no right
   corrupting a
      fine and unpolluted
          child of God
              like yourself.

That wise and comforting
    little voice
       is always there
          so won’t you please
            lend it your ear?


I would like to thank google for the wonderful and appropriate artwork.
