Going To Pot

“If we all studied poetry, Singapore would go to pot.”
Chan Heng Chee (circa 2003)

And now we have been schooled
For narcotising reasons
Objections overruled 
Going to pot is treason 

A smoking gun of leaves 
That will trigger the downfall
Of morals and beliefs
Addiction ruins us all 

Despots decree each time 
To ban unweeded viewpoints 
In denial of rhyme 
Poetry slips out of joint
