Smoke? No thanks.
I don’t want to be
A chimney.

Chew? No thanks.
I don’t want to be
A spittoon.

Drugs? No thanks.
I don’t want to be
Just a dope.

Whitney Houston

Rub-a-dub-dub; two found in two tubs.
A mother and daughter were they.
The first was on drugs; but here is the rub –
The second? We’re guessing; none say. 

Rub-a-dub-dub; face down in a tub;
Both rich ones, the second from first.
It does not take dough to join the club;
All dopers can be thus accursed. 

Rub-a-dub-dub; live, don’t take the drug.
Each day on this earth is a high.
A friend who would offer is no friend – a thug
With poison so that you will die.

Do wrong so long, and practiced ways
Are habits that the slave obeys.

Cigarettes:
First, you take one.  Then –
They take you.
