Cancer Party

There was 7 in the packet when 
we started       
7 sticks of pure, cancerous 
victory       
      
'better lock the door' she said     
  
      
The old Sod was outside 
tending his garden       
Putting those foul, spindly 
fingers     
to a more appropriate use       
Completely unaware of being       
locked out of his own house       
      
We sat in his lounge       
Watched him from the window   
    
Puffed on his cigarettes       
and laughed       
and coughed       
      
It was a waste of good smoke    
  
We didn't even inhale   
and the taste made us queasy     
  
      
      
Still, those were the best 3 and a 
half cigarettes I ever had.
