Better Have A Cigarette

I see a traffic jam up ahead
I'll be late, may as well be dead
Better have a cigarette

The boss at work
Is such a jerk
Better have a cigarette

The car won't start
It's got no heart
Better have a cigarette

It has started to rain
That's such a pain
Better have a cigarette

Had an argument with my wife
There was a bit of strife
Better have a cigarette

I've just got up
Before I pour my first cup
Better have a cigarette

Better have a cigarette
That's what I say
At the slightest thing
Throughout each day

I'm not sure how to finish this rhyme
So I will say it another time
Better have a cigarette

    I came to look at your poetry, Alessandra, with a cup of coffee in one hand and a cigarette in the other. I'm one of those lifelong smokers. I think giving up needs encouragement and a non-judgemental attitude from others, and the timing has to be right. And ofcourse there has to be commitment from the smoker... Will look at more of yours after reading your biography......

    Love, Fran xx (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
