Creative Writing


by Mike Burcl

Low on tar 

Preaches doctors who need a deep old smoke

So hungry for green 

Stronger than that craving for nicotine

CEOs sell it physician approved 

Testify smoke it if you wanna be cool

Lung cancer

Comes in fashionable powder baby blue

Menthol too

If the Kentucky leaf too harsh 

Killing the slimmest girls in Virginia 

One quick fix at a time 

Bumming squares as seconds 

Turn to hands 

Of children wishing their 

Parents habits weren’t affecting 

Their lungs and lifes 

Tell me how you bury a mother

After a cowboy killer road away

With her life

Stopping that heart in the night

Who’s to blame

Hooked since 16 

After seeing all the ads in the magazines
