WHEN I QUIT


No more cigarettes
No more choking
I am a nonsmoker
I'm not joking

It's not a laughing matter
Cancer, emphysema, or bronchitis
Or then there's always
Strokes or endocarditis

Hardening of the arteries
Only brings me down
That is why I don't
Want any cigarettes around!


4/23/1994 cj
made it 1 1/2 years without those cancer sticks
