The Deadly Butt!

Billows of smoke
Rising from the cigar
Drew
Attention
Of a teenager.

An instant choice
To puff
Grew intense inspire
Infatuated
By the sight
Of cigar butt
Rolling on
His friend’s lips.

Asked his friend
To share
The puff
And
He pulled
One long puff
Blowing the smoke
High
In the air.

Experienced
Irritation
In his throat
Life stood still.

Recalled
The advertisement
Played on
The idiot box
With a warning
Got an insight
Not to puff anymore.

He was irritate
Smashed the butt
Under his shoe
&
Vowed
Never
Ever
To touch again.

  1. If only all kids and impressionable teens could be turned off the butt in this manner. Sigh, one can hope and pray.
