Ode to the smoker

I know theyíre not healthy, I know theyíre not good
Iíd probably stop smoking if I thought that I could
Each time that I buy them, I cringe at the cost
But each time that I light up in the pleasure I am lost

Now here is the problem, I write this with charm
All I meet say, ďstop thatĒ, though Iím doing them no harm.
I donít smoke in front of them, out side I do race
Iím careful and considerate, donít blow smoke in their face

So I ask you quit bugginí me, Quit wagginí your tongues,
Itís my business what goes in and out of my lungs
Iím not really the smoker; Iím just the sucker
So leave me alone you loud mouthed mother trucker!

I agree! She says as she exhales smoke into the air. I never infringe it on anyone, not even my family. It helps me get through the rough times, at least I'm not dependant on drugs or an alcoholic!! Well done..

I had a bit of fun with this piece. I wanted to convey that we all have rights, no matter what they may be. It is our right to make our own decissions as long as they do not effect those around us. For this we should not be judged.

Thank you for you comments Isis and Lucie! Ok, light up!

Puffy

You are a bad bad girl (all girls who smoke are bad girls, dontcha know?). I liked your poem. I used to smoke, and lil Lorelei and I have backslid a couple of times when we out dancing and having a ball. Still, you are a bad bad girl (I love bad girls. That's why I married Lorelei - she's extremely naughty at times).

Thank you so much for you comments. I'm glad to see I struck a note here. (and Johnny, I'm not bad all the time, but when I am, I'm very good at it) hahahahaha

Hey, Pufalove, do you know if they have a smoking area around here, or do we have to go outside and brave the elements just like everywhere else these days?!(heheheheh)
