8ball sunflower

"It is certain."
A flower will
And so I will
"Don't ask again --
It is the future told
and for all."
I am certain.

what exactly does the 8 ball represent? is this alluding to drug use?
 — unknown

it's a toy that will tell you your future
(it will also make you feel euphoric,
given the right situation).
