Lungs

entry picture

 

No-one understood his love for smoking,

The man swore on his life, with his life,

That he would never quit his ‘hobby’.

When asked ‘why do you love it?’

He explained that he was manipulating,

The smoke, as he blew out rings.

The man expressed a knowledge for

Cancer, but said he would take his chances,

Because smoking made him feel powerful.

In the autopsy, post-demise,

I swear to you, no lies,

His lungs were clearer than the skies,

In mid July.

Ha! Now I read this when there were no replies and thought that maybe those last few lines were fibs in a 'would I lie to you' way.

I too enjoyed this.. :o)
