Don't Bother Me, I'm Smoking...

May 30, 2008
By Jose Garcia, Hayward, CA

Just smoked my last cigarette
Continuously to the butt
I’m serious about quitting
But it guides my mouth shut
Instead of chatting about
I’ll just go get me another pack

However I’ve carried out some thinking
About everyone else’s view
Cigarettes stink, and motivate cancer
So says the government and the news
Yet what of autos with drunk drivers?
Who manages the sale of booze?

And what of hairspray?
That some women can’t do without
Or the body spray that men coax them with?
What of aerosol cans
Affecting the ozone no doubt?

So why bother me?
Everyone shouts!
Well the store closes soon
So not to cause a fight
I’m going to get me some cigs
Anyone got a light?
