Just smoked my last cigarette
all the way down to the butt
I'm seriously thinking about quitting
but it helps keep my mouth shut
instead of yakity, yakity, yak
I'll just go get me another pack

however I've been doing some thinking
about everyone else's views
cigarettes stink, and cause cancer
so sayeth the government and the news
yet what of autos, and drunk drivers
who controls the sale of booze

and what of hairspray
that some women can't do without
what of aresol cans
affecting the ozone no doubt

well the store closes soon
so not to cause a fight
I'm going to get me some cigs
anybody got a light?

dedicating this poem to my smoking friends
