Getting Colder


The good doctor from Adelaide said
No more than eighteen cigarettes a day
And you will not drop dead,
Rather your health should be okay.

No more than eighteen cigarettes a day?
I think the good doctor was a bit misled.
Perhaps his knowledge of alcohol was less astray,
But he did not commit other than suggesting it wasn’t good for the head.

Again the doctor’s crowd was a little misled.
On profanity he had no opinion either way
Failing to find fault in the practice for the head
So smoke, drink, and swear. If so, you better also pray.
