- Smoke 3 Miles Away - (1st poem of my album #4, "For the Children")

In and out
Smoke 20 cigarettes
Harmed and calmed
Smoke 3 miles away
One hand in the feed hole
You cough rough and tough
I want my little siblings to survive
Cancer want people to die
I'm having a hard time breathing
Nobody seems to be quitting
Marlboro and Winston
Smoke all types of brands
Local and outsider
Continued stops in lands
Tobacco in smelly hands
Step by push
Take the step and push to protect the natural bush
Help keep the bush lush
Electronic and pure
Smoke 3 miles away
I want the children to live
Healthfully strive and thrive
Drive away 3 miles away.
