Humpty Dumpty Smoked Out


Huffy Puffy had a smoke

Huffy Puffy had to choke

All the king’s doctors and all the king’s men

Couldn’t put Huffy Puffy’s lungs together again.

    Witty but also very wise, James. People keep trying to kick the habit; it's not easy. Some wear skin patches, some think no one can smell the smoke on their clothing. Wrong! Let's offer a toast in good cheer to Huffy Puffy and hope he finds a better set of doctors. LOL Love, Carolyn

    Good one which is so true..It is a amazing how some people smoke and really don't have that much trouble and some are just devasted by lung problems and other problems that ends their lives....Sara
