He said

I don’t know to quit

I vowed many times

Managed for a period

I succumb to friends

Sometimes to worries

I fear I’ve lung cancer

Professor said

No, don’t worry for that

New medicines are tested

You smoke, ‘Bidi, cigarette,

Smack, marijuana, chilam’

That doesn’t bothers me

What I want you to do is

Use different lighters

Colored matchboxes

I don’t want to see you

With ‘Cheap Matchboxes’
