I Bow Before You - Poem by Alessandra Liverani

Oh wondrous cigarette of many different brands
How many you have helped across our widespread lands
I bow before you, Almighty God
Not for a second do I think you are a fraud

Exalted Cigarette who has lovingly bestowed
Your might and strength, which have generously towed
All of your worshippers through their obstacle filled days
Yes, you have helped them graciously in so many, many ways

I put my humble self completely at your mercy
To think you have no power would be a complete heresy
Your guidance and help are absolutely essential
Whatever your philosophy, even if existential

I bow before you, completely prostrate
I submit myself wholly, my passion never to abate
With religious fervour of the highest scale
Without your comforting presence, I'll emit a high-pitched wail

(Sydney, Australia - 2003)
