Smoker's Choice

My choice is non-smoker,
Decidedly I tried it.
And my "No," resounds.
My choice is non-smoker,
I thought about it
And the thought makes me frown.
My choice is non-smoker,
Look at what it does to teeth.
Yucky, yellow stained beneath.
My choice is non-smoker,
Is that tar that I smell?
I guess it's so, from your cough as well.
My choice is non-smoker,
Why do you wheeze when you breathe?
Making a body feel exhaust and fatigue.
My choice is non-smoker,
You say I need an oxygen tank.
Will you continue to let smoking pull rank?
The choice is yours, I say.
My choice is non-smoker,
For I shall not let cigarettes pave my way.
