micropatterns of nature 

extra large view

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust,
some say that smoking kills.
Remember, please, if inhale you must.
That verdict applies as well to pills.

There is no guarantee for life,
you have to take it as a gift,
and many man who, for health, did strive,
was by smokers far outlived.

If society is too much aging,
every addict does some good,
with some early death engaging,
building his small house of wood.

Alas, we are all very mortal,
though may regret ironic joking,
when, knocking at St. Peter’s portal,
he cooly says: ”Sorry, no smoking!”
