Subject(s): Smoking; Tobacco; Pipes; Cigars; Cigarettes


DID you ever invoke
The assistance of smoke
When the burdens of care seem to pall;
When you tire of the strife
And the boredoms of life,
And care not for your rise or your fall?

That's the time of all time
When a smoke is sublime;
It will lift from your mind every care;
For your troubles and woes
Will be lost in your doze,
Dissolved in tobacco's bright glare.

With each puff that you take
And each ring that you make
You'll experience thrills of delight;
Pleasant thoughts come and go
Through the fragrant weed's glow
And your heart's correspondingly light.

The blue Devils of care
Fade away in the air,
And your gaze meets the Goddess of Fate
Smiling down through the rings,
And the message she brings,
Makes the whole world look rosy again.
