...Mr. Cigarette


Wrapped in a cylinder
Tobacco's nicotine
Mixed with many flavors
Around soft paper

Watch a cigarette
See a cancer stick
Sentences to slowly
Split innocent lives

Buy a cigarette
An apostle of dead
With germs of Satan!
Working to make you rest

Ignite a cigarette
Taste additive pleasure
A drying's man liquor

Inhale a cigarette
Smell the perfume of dead
Slowing kissing your chest

Learn about cigarettes
Know he's not a friend!

    Ah, one of the many things in this world that will kill you, but people do it anyways.
    I'm not sure if you meant 'addictive' where you spelt 'additive? '

    Pretty straightforward, but undoubtedly true; the kiss of death from a cigarettes breath. (Report) Reply

    It was just a one day trying to smoke
    for a woman curious.

    You make it a whole life time
    scene in the media......I mean the smoking? ? ? ?

    WHY?
