How To Do It - Poem by Alessandra Liverani

I could give a talk to you
On cigarettes and how they create a mucky goo
But you'd just look at me right through
And keep doing what you do
Keep smoking cigarettes

I could for hours pontificate
Set up a brilliant, logical debate
But it probably wouldn't even rate
And you couldn't even wait
To smoke a cigarette

But if I could turn you into an object of ridicule
Make you publically a fool
Harness that power as my tool
The one as kids we learned in school
Then you'd never smoke a cigarette
