Cigarette Philosophy Poem by Ayatullah Nurjati

Cigarette Philosophy

Rating: 5.0


There is a longing that resides in a cigarette
The puff of smoke that is inhaled resides in the deepest heart with every inhalation
The addiction in nicotine and tar becomes an idol in a cigarette
The smoke that is inhaled from the mouth, larynx, pharynx drops into the lungs, liver and heart as if their idols in every inhalation

In the medical world there are many poisons in a cigarette
But the medicine for a geek like me for always sucking it
It will be numb if I don't smoke it even if it's just a cigarette
The philosophy of coffee and cigarettes is like husband and wife who become partners when when we are sucking it
