How To Stay A Smoker - Poem by Alessandra Liverani

I am the chief head shrink for a tobacco firm
And the most important thing from me that they want to learn
Is how to make you stay a smoker, never give them up
Until you're on your death bed, and with them still in love

Firstly, you must always think that they give you great enjoyment
That is how tobacco firms will always have employment
Then you must think that your health doesn't mean so much
You have to lose contact with reality just a touch

Next you must believe that right now is never a good time
And always have many reasons to support the continuation of this pastime
Better yet, if you can think it a complete impossiblity
To never smoke again, then for sure you'll never be free

(Sydney, Australia - 2006)

    Thank you so much for writing this, thanks to this post I've completely gotten over the whole quit smoking phase I was going through, do you have any poems you'd recommend to encourage me to become a chain smoker? Thank you so much.
