Nicotine and tobacco are what it’s all about;
Pushes world wide webs’ reach and sway way, way down in clout.

Into every nook and cranny in macabre dance.

Americas’ nicotinism world export biologic.
Americas’ nicotinism big ‘gift’ to world political.
Americas’ nicotinism defines worldwide cultural.

How on earth does sane earth allow this health constrictive?
Nicotinism and smoke entwine mans’ DNA?
How and when did this slavery come about you say?
Americans are expert at slavery you may recall.
So listen to this pathway then You will know it all:
Shift from body politic to just plain ole body.
Follow this route serpentine subtle oh so oddly.
So let us start here where we have heard it by ear.
So oft it’s said you may put down your anchor here:
“I’ve tried and tried again to give smoking up.
But when I’m uptight tense I gotta have a butt.
And many people I know all feel this same way.
We are conflicted by what the doctors say.
The Surgeon General warns day after day.
We sense they are right but that seems not to matter.
When our angst is up good sense does simply scatter.
How come in such instances we lose all our controls?
As smoke and mirrors we pursue our daily goals.
Twelve times most days we stop and do what cigarettes say.
How deep goes this slave act we must do every day?
How does this addiction become part of our fiber?
We are complicit with some venture contriver.
Tobacco we inbody against against better judgement.
As if it gets into us without our consent.
It’s hard to admit being raped by a weed,
Yet we ready take part in planting of its seed.
Tobac lasts* three hundred a day for C’s now anew.
Embedded now on all land square inch is it’s residue.
PREGNANT MOTHERS AND DADS TO BE CAN’T BUT TAKE IT IN.
IT’S ALL AROUND THEM IN EACH LUNG AND ON THEIR PARENTAL SKIN.
WHEN SPERM MEETS EGG NICOTINE IS RIGHT THERE IN FALLOP. TUBE.
IN ALL THOSE FLUIDS TO SLIP IT IN THE PATHWAY FOR TO LUBE.
THE CERVIX TOO IS ALL DRENCHED AND ALL IN HIGH CONTENT.
NICOTINE HAS BIG ROLE TO PLAY BY PARTIES’ CONSENT.
ZYGOTES GROW WITH WHAT SEEMS TO BE GREAT SPEED OF LIGHT.
OUR ECTODERM FORMS NEURAL TUBE BY OUR FIRST FORTNIGHT.
WHEN IT CLOSES TO MAKE OUR BRAINS NICOTINE NOW THEREIN.
BEFORE DAY ONE OUR FATE IS IN WEBS NICOTINE DOES SPIN.
*one last equals two tons
There is only one “Air” toxic gas.
