Anyone Here Smoke Salvia?

Anyone here smoke salvia?
Four mumbled yes's followed
I stayed quiet
I was shocked
What the heck!
A bag is thrown on the table
Drugs I know
And where is the booze?
What do you want?
Anything
I'm gonna slip it in my soda
Then when the adults are drunk
I'll sneak more
You plan on getting high and whipped right?
Yeah
No words leave my mouth
We will sneak out and share a smoke
Again
I'm speechless
I decide I've heard enough
I thought I knew these kids
Not more than one or two or three years
Older than me
And now I'm sitting here
Listening to how they plan
To get drunk 
And high as a kite
If they asked
I would say
Nope
Sorry
I have an uncle in detox
True story you know
He's been there for two days so far
And I was there
When my family was dragging him
To the car
He couldn't stand up
And had no idea 
Where he was
Or what day or year it was
Robert
What month is it
The nurse asked
I don't know
A cold one
He mumbled 
As he was rocking back and forth 
Struggling for balance
What year is it
2010.
2011. 
So did we have new years already
Yeah
Truthfully
It was December
29th
Of 2010
And after the nurse left
He passed out
For five hours 
Then woke up
He couldn't stand up
And couldn't hold or eat
A pop tart that my mom
Was giving him
In little pieces   
If you wanna end up like that
Fine by me
Count me out
Five
Four 
Three
Two
One
Happy new years to me
