If I suggested you jog down a motorway

A finger you would wag;

Yet you're ready to shorten life's own highway

Dying for a fag!

If I suggested you dip your hand

In a jar full of dangerous bugs

You'd get the needle - and I'd understand,

So why do it with dangerous drugs?

If I suggested daily you fill the sink

With the sort of booze that rots your guts

And drain it - wouldn't you actually think

I was nuts - no ifs or buts?!

It would be nice to think that simple sense

Would to our rescue ride,

But common sense just seems past tense

When it comes to suicide!

Common sense seems foreign.
To many folk today
They jump in feet first, what the heck
What the heck they say

I'm gonna have a good time
Just couldn't care a less
You say I'm suicidal?
My life is in a mess?

Well stuff it gonna 'joy myself
No matter what you say
Hello? Who's that that's fallen dead?
What more, what can I say ?

It's nearly 40 years since I packed up smoking. In real terms, at say a pack per day at £9, I have saved myself £100,000, as well as perhaps my life, or at least my health.

Well said Mark.
