Suffocation of the suffocation

Of it goes, to break away. . .

From everyday chores, to wander stray.

Suffocated by the trap, burning from the heat. . .

It is now free, living a treat.

The journey however, was not so sweet. . .

Air and blood, were the people to greet.

Though death it causes, they say. . .

Smoke from the pipe ascends away.

    Smoking is one hell of a thing — a poison yet people prefer it on daily basis. Very well-expressed,
