Some Hope

May 19, 2022

In making a better world

Others participate

I found some hope

In some recent encounters

Usually my deliveries are made

Like a factory worker

Kicking out a widget

Open door, point at freight

Get next delivery ready

Close door, sign here, print here

“Thanks for the quick help”

(Regardless how long it took

So they will be quicker….next time)

“Have a nice day……….bye”

Start engine, release brakes…..boogie

Every once in a while, will deliver

Something peculiar or to a peculiar place

Must pause and ask questions

So “what is “this” for ?” To which

Will either hear, they have no clue

And are just doing their “factory” work

Or will get a hearty, let me tell you….

After picking up 50,000 pounds of

Palletized big bags of some grain

Shipping out to be converted to fuel

Inquiring in between 24 pallets

On two trailers with a pallet jack

The loader / entrepreneur showed

Me how their small set up was

Being adapted to process hemp

Finally a natural resource used wisely

“No other natural resource offers the potential of hemp. Cannabis Hemp is capable of producing significant quantities of paper, textiles, building materials, food, medicine, paint, detergent, varnish, oil, ink, and fuel.”


What came out of the dually prompted
Conversation of quick questioning was
The fibres in hemp will be able to make
Lighter windmill blades turning turbines

Also, since old broken carbon fiber ones
Up to 170′ feet long get buried in land fills
Their process will be able to stop that and
Incorporate it in to the new blades win win

At a different stop at a larger operation
The converted warehouse was bustling
With activity around flaxen colored bales
That looked uniquely strange so I had to ask

What is this stuff used for, for I am curious

Received the same stored excited response
It can make concrete lighter and stronger
Eliminating plastics and toxic resins…cool

All this time during the alleged “drug war”
Rather the attack on personal freedoms war
Society could have been using this hemp
To build more homes quicker and cheaper
With tons and tons less environment damage


The following “bit” is slightly dated, however…

“Why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally on our planet, serves a thousand different functions, all of them positive.

To make marijuana against the law is like saying that God made a mistake. Like on the seventh day God looked down,

“There it is. My Creation, perfect and holy in all ways.

Now I can rest. 

Oh my Me!………

I left fuckin’ pot everywhere. I should never have smoked that joint on the third day. Hehe, that was the day I created the possum. Still gives me a chuckle.

But if I leave pot everywhere, that’s gonna give people the impression they’re supposed to … use it.

Now I have to create Republicans.”

” … and God wept”,

I believe is the next part of that story.

– Bill Hicks
