Last cigarette

As we sat outside a bar in Amsterdam
Bicycles to the left, midday drinkers to the right
I noticed the ashtrays all neatly arranged
One per table, in the centre

Isn’t it funny how something so deadly
is laid out in open view?

Forget all the warnings, the pictures of organs,
the death rates they show in the news.

I smoked my last cigarette a year ago.
I’m not missing out on a single day with you.
