But It Makes Me Lots Of Money

Cigarette addiction kills people
But it makes me lots of money
It ruins their health
But it makes me lots of money
They cannot breathe properly
But it makes me lots of money
Their addiction causes them misery
But it makes me lots of money
A trillion cigarette butts pollute our earth daily
But it makes me lots of money
Cigarettes cause fires which burn many people to death
But it makes me lots of money
Parents buy cigarettes when their children need to eat
But it makes me lots of money
Cigarette smoke fills our bars and nightclubs, very unpleasant
But it makes me lots of money
Dirty ashtrays are disgusting
But it makes me lots of money
Why are you allowed to promote and sell such a disgusting product?
Because I've got lots of money

(Sydney, Australia - 2003)

How Hard Is It?

How hard is it to in a bikini Mt Everest climb?
It's not as hard as quitting smoking
How hard is it to find a word that with orange does rhyme?
It's not as hard as quitting smoking

How hard is it to fly freely like a bird cross the sky
It's not as hard as quitting smoking
How hard is it to never, ever die
It's not as hard as quitting smoking

How hard is it to swim up Niagara Falls
It's not as hard as quitting smoking
How hard is it to juggle ten thousand balls
It's not as hard as quitting smoking

How hard is it to read every book that's been written
It's not as hard as quitting smoking
How hard is it to give birth to a kitten
It's not as hard as quitting smoking

How hard is it to eat a rhino for tea
It's not as hard as quitting smoking
How easy is it to take a walk by the sea?
It's as easy as quitting smoking

(Sydney, Australia - 2004)

Problem Solving

To solve a problem you must be
Analytical and objective
You must include every single fact
And refrain from being subjective

Let's look at smoking impartially
And collate the various facts
Nicotine is a mild stimulant
I'm not talking through my hat

The drug itself does not relax
Infact it does the reverse
How can we explain this mystery
It all seems rather perverse

A mild stimulant is ruling your life
Yes, that's right, it's not even strong
It's got you at its beck and call
Stringing you all right along

A mild stimulant? The joke's on you
And all of your friends in this farce
This drug is laughing itself silly
That you fell right into its path

It has no power other than what you give it
It'll take whatever you've got
And use it against you mercilessly
It does that quite a lot

(Sydney, Australia - 2003)

- A Storm In A Teacup: : Humour

Jeny owns a little brown dog, as cute as cute can be
But don't be in the vicinity when he begins to pee
He'd put grown men to shame, a fire hose looks small-fry
When he cocks his tiny leg, and lets his waters fly

Such a dainty dog you'd think would just produce a drizzle
From his part chihuahua, part something else, pint sized wizzle
But once the spigot opens to relieve the pressure in his urinary sac
The megalitres dammed inside are rapidly unpacked

A microclimate is propagated, its chief feature a monsoon
A puddle was predicted, not a fathoms deep lagoon
And that is why we have christened him with an intention fond
Our super peeing hero's bone shaped tag proudly displays 'Big Pond'

(Sydney, Australia - 2011)
