Jan, congratulations on your many places in the current top 100 poems on Poetry Soup. I enjoy all of them. This one was a real surprise in the reading versus the title. Fun!!

Thanks so much Franklin - I don't look at the list Franklin - I wish it wasn't there - it is more to do the the popularity of a person where people 'favourite' their work rather than be based on their poetic ability. I just write for fun and am just pleased others seem to like my style :-) hugs Jan

Funny stuff my friend and YOU'RE somokin' too with this little gem!...At first I thought you were referring to one of those LEFT-HANDED cigarettes as we call them here in the States but then I looked it up on the internet and found otherwise but who knows? I wouldn't be surprised of old Al himself did either...BIG congrats - Tim
