I’m now found in a very tight spot,
A smoker am I, a great fan of nicotine,
But, you see, the habit is costing me a yacht,
And, minus the cost, it’s a health guillotine.
Once, long ago, I said: “You have to die some way”,
My opinion has changed since then,
I’ve seen the way cigarettes strip you fully away,
I don’t want to be caught in its murderous pen.
Quitting then is the only decision,
I’ve got added dollar signs to help with motivation,
If I quit now I can avoid the incision,
And hear my family’s total elation.
To smoke, or not to smoke?
The answer’s so clear, the questions a joke.
