The following is a guest post by David Piller at Hemp For Humanity.

Hey now, what are we gonna do, now we’ve seen an Inconvenient Truth?

It’s time to shake off all the sand, rise on up and take a stand.

We all know that we’re facing problems. Open minds will be what helps us solve them.

We’ve got to put all our options on the table,

As we try to chart a course to help our planet grow more stable.

Hemp’s a crop you’ve all heard about before.

The last time we could grow it here was during the Second War.

Since that time Congress has chosen to ignore it. A course of action that we cannot afford.

Hey now, what are we gonna do, now we’ve seen an Inconvenient Truth?

It’s time to shake off all the sand, rise on up and take a stand.

You know we’ll have to take it to the streets, to let our farmers grow H-E-M-P.

Anything that we make with cotton, wood or oil,

Can be made from a plant that springs up from the soil.

It doesn’t require tons of toxic pesticides,

Unlike those cotton crops where they spread it far and wide.

We’ve got to stop the logging of so much of our forests,

Let’s plant hemp instead and we can reap a thrice yearly harvest.

Hemp’s potential is beyond our imagination. Won’t you help me, in waking up the Nation?

Hey now, what are we gonna do, now we’ve seen an Inconvenient Truth?

It’s time to shake off all the sand, rise on up and take a stand.

You know we’ll have to take it to the streets, to let our farmers grow H-E-M-P.

If you take a look at causes Environmental, what you’ll find are lots of scattered causes local.

The way I see it we’ve been like a shotgun shell, trying to hit far-off “Target Sustainable”.

We’ve got to mold our selves into a bullet, then this target, I know that we can hit it.

Let’s join together and bring hemp into the fore,

Then we’ll really help the Earth’s health to restore.

Hey now, what we’re going to do, now we’ve learned Hemp’s Convenient Truths,

We’re going to shake off all the sand, rise on up and take a stand.

Someday we will take it to the streets to let our farmers grow H-E-M-P.


This song is one that I wrote over a year ago as part of my efforts to bring Hemp back to American agriculture. I know that many of you reading this share the common goal of a sustainable future for ourselves and our children. As the song says, the power of the green movement has not been maximized to date due to our scattered energy. I have a dream that in this year’s Earth Day events and actions, hemp will be a dominant theme for Power through Unity.

  1. Love it! I am always amazed at how folks choose to deny what’s right in front of them – for reasons of fear! If hemp is allowed the whole country will go up in smoke – the big battle against drugs run by President Bush – hopefully things with Obama will come around to a more civilized and informed decision making regarding hemp as a tool to help the american farmers grow.
