The Lyrics

They sure have alot of poppy crop
Down in the Afghani hills
They get opium from poppy crop
And they forever will
Lots of ammo bought with poppy crop
Sure you've heard about that
Wild it will make you, oh that opium
Some folks dream about that

Chorus:
Poppy crop, you'll always be
Annual and free
Good ol' poppy crop
Poppy crop, Afghani
Poppy crop, Afghani

Once two strangers looked for poppy crop
Up in Afghanistan hills
Strangers ain't come down with poppy crop
Reckon they ever will?
Corn don't grow at all with poppy crop
Don't need veggies up there
Opium's more prized than poppin' corn
This ain't no county fair

Chorus:
Poppy crop, you'll always be
Beautiful and free
Good ol' poppy crop
Poppy crop, Afghani
Poppy crop, Afghani

I've had months of cramped-up writer's block
Nothin' came from my pen
So I watched a little TV and
Got an idea again

Poppy crop, you'll always be
Annual and free
Good ol' poppy crop
Poppy crop, Afghani
Poppy crop, Afghani

^WHS. And well-executed, too :-)

I love a good pop tune. Long time, no see.

The ironic part is that at one time, our US Gummint gave millions to (guess who) the Taliban to "fight the poppy trade". (true) They used it to buy weapons against us... So long as the US continues to wage repeated versions of Prohibition, the enrichment of criminal empires will continue. Inject these Fives.

So that's why they STONE their women in Afghanistan!

You mowed some blue grass with this one

Royce, I just saw your parody, "Where Has Vincent Foster Gone?" (why weren't comments authorized?) You should re-post that, now that Foster's murderer is suddenly the top contender for President of the United States.

Welcome back, Royce. Excellent substitutions. As TT implies, the War on Drugs does a better job of keeping the price of drugs high than it does of keeping the use of drugs low.

555 kilos of diacetylmorphine. Royce, you're back!!! Great to see you again here - I've been a bit worried if something has happened to you? You haven't made a song for roughly a year - it is so nice you've come back and certainly not lost your edge.

Enjoyed this!

Alvin, Phil, John, TT, John J, Susanna, Rex, AFW and Peter, thanks for your comments. Susanna, something did happen to me. But it's getting a little better.

Hope it continues to do so. Keep us "posted", so to speak. Best wishes from here.

Royce... aww *HUGS*! We've all missed you - I sincerely hope you will get over it. Poetry is excellent self-therapy - I made last year three songs (The Steeltown trilogy) to unravel my own past and my unfulfilled professional dreams. I wish you luck and good recovery!
