I wouldn't say that I was glam.
Starting long, I finish short,
Putting you on life support.
I make a mess, I don't smell nice,
And accompanying me is a very high price.
Life with me will never be fun -
I'm sure you'll wish you'd never begun!
To this one I have got no answer.
All I offer is lung cancer.
Do you wish we'd never met?
Yes, me - that killer cigarette!
