Poem - Don’t Get High

The poem “Don’t Get High” was inspired Elvira Hancock’s line “Don’t get high on your own supply”, advice given to Tony Montana in the 1983 movie “Scarface”.


Don’t Get High

Don’t get high on your own supply
so warns Elvira to the vain
using product without refrain
instead of sharing what heaven gave

stock ascribed to life’s aid
more than enough to elevate
is depleted when squandered
in private times without friends

share the wealth with all kinds
lest the king falls from the heights
become a pauper among the peers
when all could profit from treasure’s cache

lest the sanity slip away
from indulgence without gain
misery shared is more than halved
with goodness borne from your supply

lastly consider the karmic check
proffered by the one who gave
medications for toils of life
meant to be shared because you’ll die.
