PLAINLY SPEAKING

the verdict is in
cigarettes do cause cancer
it’s been known for years

the verdict is in
those who smoke can become hooked
it’s been known for years

right on the package –
“Cigarettes may cause cancer” –
or to that effect

outrageous taxes!
smoking is too expensive
it’s outrageous!

but they go right on,
these hooked victims of smoking,
ignoring the facts

a desperate need –
smoking, like the need for gasoline –
and prices will soar!

come on, let’s face it!
the big money is riding on
our human weakness

and the end result?
very rich or very poor,
the new age classes
