A smoker’s alibi

Posted in Uncategorized by gkhiangte on April 12, 2009


I start a fire

I create the smoke

I choke on the fumes

I jeopardize my health

I risk my life with a stick that kills

By striking a match, I start to kill

One by one, slowly and surely

Strike three- you’re out!

My rude inconsideration leaves you breathless

There is no excuse for my ignorance

There is no justification to my cruel crime

I am killing two birds with one cigarette-

Every time I take a puff.

    Excuse me for budding in with such a long comment, but I found this song on the net, check out the lyrics:

    It was, I remember, many years ago,
    When I had failed to distinguish between a friend and a foe,
    When they had invited me ,holding open the pack,
    When I lost to curiosity, instead of being taken aback,
    When on that fateful day , for the first time,
    I held a cigarette in my hand.

    It was, I felt a part of being in the teens,
    And what had started with a puff or two became a routine.
    The smoke’s illusion blinded me for as it arose,
    Arose my spirits too, and I muttered to myself, “I can” because,
    With a cigarette in my hand ,
    I felt like a man.

    Soon it came out in the open, for it had become a habit I could not hide,
    I was helpless, for I could not help but continue,
    Even when I knew, it was eating me up from inside,
    I was sick…my body and my soul and I realized,
    With the cigarette in my hand,
    I was a dying man.

    Soon I was just a lifeless form, a hollow,
    People shunned me everywhere, I wished,
    If only had I done something which others could follow,
    But it was too late, I had taken the wrong path, and I was ignored, because
    With a cigarette in my hand,
    I was a hated man.

    All the time, tears filled my eyes,
    For people had bid me their good byes,
    I wept because my cells , my body was choking ,
    If only on that first day,my friends had been joking,
    And then one day, the cigarette dropped from my hand,
    I was a dead man

    Sure took your time to update your blog.. Got a poem off quizilla and it goes like so:

    Toxic Habit

    Smoke a cig with all of its flavor,
    Each drag you really like to savor.
    Puff, puff goes the smoke in the air,
    All the non-smokers don’t understand and they stare.
    Smell on your clothes stays put,
    Each cigarette like a mini chimney full of soot.
    Lungs withering away and turning all black,
    Just know that it is permanent and you can never turn back.
