What if John Adams came back to Amsterdam?
“Novelty of scene, the inexperience of the actors
against paying for things we haven’t ordered” J.Adams (Canto LXVIII)
Over ocean wave and round bend of bay
John Adams with his wooden stump,
missing eye, parrot and hat
arrived at Amsterdam Central Station.
From the land of Mars rovers
Google and the CIA
John Adams changed the game
together with George Washington
buying cannabis retail outlets
and hemp factory unions.
Bringing it all to Europe,
hemp seed, oil mills, guns
and the wah-wah pedal
‘we must agree on something’
And new loans from Holland
to buy guns and dope
and give em to the people
some truffles are a valuable
John Adams bought a house
on Princengracht and opened
a foundation ‘Unistat
cannabis culture’ along with west
coast sexmagic and free jazz.
Necklaces bore the motto
JOHN ADAMS FOR PEACE
bongs and rolling tins donned more
slogans: KEEP OUT OF EUROPE, and
IGNORANCE OF COIN, CREDIT
John Adams cycled along the Gracht
like Albert Hoffmann, a stranger in a
strange new land, pipe ablaze with the
finest East Indian charas and Haze.
“and the Farben works still intact”
he said to the polite officer who stopped
John and issued an ‘on-the-spot’ fine
due to insufficient illumnated seers
or simply (no bicycle lights)
J.A came to Amsterdam and unified bankers
in support for CANNABIS
the British and French found this to be
a bitter ball to swallow, at first
“J.A will provide” said Washington, sweating.
“I have been in the most curious country among the most incomprehensible people and under the most singular constitution of government in the world” J.A
