Can You Do It? - Poem by Alessandra Liverani

Can you do it, can you do it
Can you really take the plunge
Can you not puff one forever
And get rid of all that gunge

Are you ready, are you ready
To live your life so free
Not to worry if you need one
Or maybe two or three

We are waiting, we are waiting
Come on and take the jump
The only fear is fear itself
You'll land with a gentle thump

At last you've done it, yes you've done it
I always knew you could
It's so much better than you thought it
As I always said it would

(Sydney, Australia - 2003)

    No way, I'll never do it, I'll keep on smoking until it sends me to my grave. Cigarettes are more valuable than life, only fools quit. (Report) Reply
