My tribute to my work which involves copious amounts of research/writing regarding tobacco prevention. I always knew that my brain would eventually churn out something tobacco related . . . that irritating uncontrollable thing called inspiration finally kicked me in the a** I guess. I toyed with a short story at first which quickly evolved into an idea for a play instead and am now sadly stuck between the two. But at least I managed to get some of it out in poetry form.
