ODE TO LAUGHING GRASS
By John C. "The Engineer" Turmel

Aug. 16, 1994 Hemp Rally in Toronto Canada
(To the tune of "Glory Glory Halleluiah")

Throughout all history, hemp's been a plant of great repute,
Four months to grow a mini-tree of twenty foot from shoot,
More oxygen converted from dioxide-carbon smogs,
Four times more wood than forestry can chop trees into logs.
A hardy plant, insecticides and fertilizers, not,
It grows so tall the shade kills weeds for fertile garden plot.
It's source of protein primary for man and beast alike,
The best plant used for finger in environmental dike.

REFRAIN:
Hemp protects human environment,
Hemp provents human defilement,
Hemp promotes human achievement,
God's gift for certain life.

John C. Turmel, B. Eng., 19940816

Hemp fuel, hemp paints, hemp varnishes, hemp fibers, cloth and rope,
Hemp fertilizer, oil and plastics, medicines of hope.
For crops of untold uses which can soon be realized,
Our greatest source of bio-mass must first be legalized.
With petro-fuels with sulfur being burned into the air,
A fuel of bio-mass would help environmental care.
The industry of dirty petro-chemicals may fear,
It's nature's agri-chemicals we'll substitute, it's clear.

While alcohol debases, vibes of negative grow strong,
Some laughing grass makes calm and jolly, wishing no one wrong.
There's never been recorded death from using hemp, they say,
It's sedative that fits receptors in our DNA.
The chance that we may yet evade environmental doom,
With planet's fastest-growing vegetable, no need for gloom.
The Abolitionists charge that "On lies are based these laws."
Abolishing hemp prohibition is our second cause.
