"Please Don't Smoke"

An unusual and unusually specific Google search brought someone all the way from Indore, India, to Orange Crate Art today:

no smoking points 5 or 8 lines poem or 8 lines song on no smoking for 7 yrs old kids
The search led to the archived page for October 2005, which contains a post marking my sixteenth year sans cigarettes. That page also contains references to kids, lines, poems, points, and songs, scattered among the month's posts.

I thought it would be fun to create a song that meets this searcher's need. I wrote the words; Elaine Fine wrote the music. If you click on the images below, you'll find larger, more readable, more singable, more playable, and perhaps more persuasive sheet music.

Alas, it's not a song, but a --mere poem ----

Tobacco is a filthy weed
From the devil doth proceed
Stains the fingers
Burns the clothes
Makes a chimney of your God-given nose!
