Strange Smoke Curling Twists: In Who Grim Reaper Smokers Reaps Poem by Terence George Craddock

Strange Smoke Curling Twists: In Who Grim Reaper Smokers Reaps

there are pipe smoke old tales
smoke curling strange twists
in fate tobacco addictions
woven into nicotine smokers
dice cast addictions claims
those who never smoked
yet cancer struck down died
from lung cancer passive smoking

visible peril living
with smoker partners
or visiting
smoke filled rooms
back in those distant days
when smoking

was allowed
everywhere clouds
of smoke hung
two thirds
to the floor in pubs
filled with crowds
of smokers smoking cigarettes
earlier generations

roll your own tobacco or pipes
one of my mother's relatives
smoked heavy duty
like an industrial chimney
addicted smoked like a chimney
but lived to an old age

never ill never got any cancers
smoked all their lives
without issues is supposedly
good genes but rare most
pay horror throat lung
cancer deadly price

green frog smoke
choke croak
