Big Tobacco's Creed - Poem by Alessandra Liverani

Big Tobacco's Creed

They got lips? We want them
They got lungs? We'll destroy them
They got money? We'll take it
They got happiness? We'll crush it
They got family? We'll kill them
They got pride? We'll lose it
They got hope? We'll remove it
They got peace of mind? Not any more

Do we care?
It's not company policy
