Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


A Single Cigarette Sucked Down


just a single cigarette sucked down shrinking
chemical cocktail includes Hydrogen Cyanide
gas chamber poison does not make you a Jew...

your cig choice chosen quantities
slow time lit cannot
compare to agony clawing gas...

chamber walls holocaust
smokers time dying in mass
numbers global can recant...

your cig choice chosen quantities slow time lit cannot!
compare to agony clawing gas chamber walls holocaust!
smokers time dying in mass numbers global can recant!
