IF YOU SELL IT, YOU MUST USE IT
Assembled at the long witness table,
Stern-faced middle aged white men,
All purveyors of death.
All tobacco executives being,
Subjected to a barrage of questions by US House interlocutors.
Do you smoke?
To hell no, all in unison.
You know that you sell death,
That’s why you do not smoke…silence.
Alcohol merchants are teetotalers.
Crack marketers refuse cracking.
Marijuana merchandisers abhor hemp.
Why would they not use their products?
Because they market pain, suffering, sickness, and death to others.
If the promoters of products,
Do not use the products,
Compel them to use their products,
And watch the death rates decline,
As they stop making or selling their death products.
The reason for not using their death products,
Is because they abhor suicide,
And wish early death to others,
While filling their coffers with cash,
And laughing on their way to the banks?
Hope that the world’s lawmakers,
Are paying attention.
If you sell it,
You must use it,
Or stop selling it.

But they warned before they sell
Warning is new. To paraphrase Bob Marley, “Even doctors used to market and smoke it.” Once hooked it is not easy to quit.
These merchants of death hurling millions to the bank should reconsider their stand on their products. Millions are walking the streets in the parlance of madmen because of addiction to these stuffs. People are smoking in public places even with the ‘No smoking ‘ sign. The taste of the pudding is in the eating, they said. Let them taste what they ‘cook’ for others. May God help us!
