Anti-Smoking Poem

Written on Feb 07, 2018

For someone quite so opposed to certain ways of life,
You seem to have quite a fondness of phallic objects in your mouth.
Through you using these, you cause others strife.
And yet you do not seem to know the effects of these on health:
We choke on your fumes and the poisons sting our eyes.
But strangely, you would seem suprised if any of us dies.

And do you know how strange you look?
With that rolled up paper filled with grass,
It's just hanging out your mouth, where you don't give a damn.
How about I ask you this: Would you let it hang out your...?
