can destroy your spirit

    Others try to control tobacco use
    Forcing one to become a recluse
    Where in isolation of one's own choosing
    Others gather to avoid the abusing.

    Tobacco is a blessing in disguise
    As it hastens ones demise
    An early death seems to be ensured
    So that the agony of old age need not be endured.

    When the cost to the country is considered
    Would be less expensive to let those like encumbered
    Go the ways of Tobacco's pleasures
    Than the cost of old age's Medical Adventures.

    Just a thought for those who seem hell bent
    On seeing that others must repent
    And enjoy the agony of growing old
    If it is in fact, enjoyment bold!

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
