Too late


I hear you coughing.

you say it’s too late

the damage is already done.

I would die without a fag, you say.

it’s true the damage is done.

They’re taking you away.

I see your coffin.

  1. Another horrid addiction. Thank goodness TRH has stopped. He started at 10! This year he had the winter wog so bad he couldn’t smoke and has not started again. That’s over 2 months now. Fingers crossed it lasts. It takes quite some time for the body to repair and recover. Interestingly he has never had a smokers cough.
