Rude & Obnoxious

They smoked their lungs to near-deflation
like tires kissing nails
his lips black, were once cherry
tobacco never fails, he said

An apple a day, kept the doctor away
She ate broccoli and kale 
Never smoked a joint 
Red meat was bad, she said

Lung Cancer came knocking
took her at Nineteen
'They and He' came to her funeral

rude and obnoxious

♠ Tomi.O

This is not a poem about smoking but about life's random cruelty.

PS, Smoking Kills though but you knew that already.
