Inspired by the stories told to me, while living in Belize, of fishermen finding bales of weed floating in the Caribbean Sea.

DRIFTWEED

Sailing the sea A bale of green Bobbing with the tide

You sail the sea A bale of green Ebb & flow with the tide The forgotten ganja Aimless in the Caribbean Lost on the journey north

He set out to sea The young fisherman Rising with the sun

He set out to sea The young fisherman Rising with the sun Casting his net Fixing his lures The tide speaking to him

The catch of the day A bale of green His fortune in fabled driftweed

The catch of the day A bale of green His fortune in fabled driftweed Dealing with friends Selling to strangers Trading green for greed

Officers approached Then the sound of a gack Officer down, officer down

Two officers approach Then the sound of a gack Officer down, officer down They hauled him in That young fisherman Hattieville for life

All for this dream For green and greed The great fable of driftweed
