DEATH WISH HAIKU A Musical History of Cigarettes

DEATH WISH HAIKU (AS Musical History of Cigarettes) L.S.M.F.T. Snooky Lanson sang it clear smoke in every ear. From your Hit Parade, Frank Sinatra blew the words one time Didn't Fence Him In. Dorothy Collin's voice America there's only one to smoke Lucky Strike's the one. Drifting up her nose pulling smoke into her lung biting on her tongue what is she doing? coffins closing in with nails death as slow as snails. Do you want a Lucky? More satisfaction pleasure undertakers measure. Camel smoke was nil More Doctors smoked Lucky Strikes Than Mike Hammer smoked. Nicotine all day tie hers up in Christmas bows blow it out her nose. Free on Navy ships Sailors never saw the light Though the match was free.
