turn to one of the young men
seated around the fire and say,
“Now you should roll a great big joint.”

  1. “Originally a patriarch was a man who exercised autocratic authority as a pater familias over an extended family. The system of such rule of families by senior males is called patriarchy. This is a Greek word, a composition of πατήρ (pater) meaning “father” and ἄρχων (archon) meaning “leader”, “chief”, “ruler”, “king”, etc.” [Wikipedia].
