Lung Love Limerick Contest

I just can't stand the smell any more
Sleeping with you is a chore!
You reek of stale smoke
Your stench makes me choke
Either quit or else sleep on the floor!

Tobacco will end your life quicker
It's just as addictive as liquor
It won't help you chill
It just makes you ill
And it's not good for your ticker!

It's time that you put out your butts
Get out of your tobacco ruts
Because smoking is crazy
So just quit; don't be lazy
To continue you'd have to be nuts!

Hahaha. Thanks for an excellent contribution! The first is my favorite, though I doubt making the man sleep on the floor will help the snore volume. LOL. :)
