Cigarette smoking is a personal choice, and none of the governments business. Drunks, and drunk driving are a far great societal risk than cigarettes and second hand smoke.

The health police wish to ban them.
Cigarettes are evil they say.
To take away you’re right to smoke
That is the name of their game.
Countless people die each day
At the hands of alcohol.
Society is full of drunks
It’s booze that should be outlawed.
Drunk driving is far more dangerous
Then the effects of second hand smoke.
God forbid should you advertise cigarettes
Smoking it might provoke.
Television is full of ads for alcohol
Yet smokers should be ashamed.
Better to be a slobbering alcoholic
It’s a disease for which you can’t be blamed.
It’s none of the governments business
To smoke or to quit, it is your choice.
As freedom loving Americans
We need to exercise our voice.
If you cherish your freedom
You’ll start smoking today.
To hell with the anti smoking nazi’s
You’ll live you’re life…your way!
