I Want To Smoke - Poem by Alessandra Liverani

I want to smoke, just like them, well not quite
'Cos not all of the day and not all of the night
I want to smoke, but addiction, what's that all about?
I'll smoke, thank you, but leave the addiction bit out

I want to smoke just for the heck of it
As long, of course, as my life I don't make a wreck of it
I want to smoke, I'm assuming there's some benefit
Otherwise people would stop, they'd simply just quit

I want to smoke, I think it's daring and wild
It's not about fear, like the fears we have as a child
I want to smoke, I think it's grown up and cool
And I can't understand why people say I'm a fool
