Mr Free Cannabis – a name granted to him by the poll of deeds,
Tricked the council into watering cannabis plants for twenty years
After a community effort to contribute seeds,
And give them a new home inside his shop display
Of a bicycle and a trailer hooked up behind –
And became the whole scene of the crime
Where the plants were seized and due to hemp-phobia
He was informed the seeds could no longer grow here,
Despite having featured in the In Bloom awards one year,
Yes – that very same display!
So for Mr Cannabis it was a very sad day,
And all the others who had dropped seeds in the tubs,
To see the end to their much-loved shrubs.
