Out on the smoking porch
Out where it started
Not that porch
But the same all the same.

Out on the smoking porch
Last night it was crowded
I talked again
About fentanyl's reign.

It took me forever
To give up smoking
Took forever
'Cause addiction's that way.

It took me forever
From smoking porch days
Back in ninth grade
Where the cool kids all hanged.

Out on the smoking porch
We talked about it
The kid who ate
A fentanyl patch.

Out on the smoking porch
The ghosts so many
From more funerals
Any could count.

I had forever
To give up smoking
Had forever
'Cause smoking kills slow.

I had forever
But not these young kids
Need to be cool
On a morgue slab today.

Thank you. I'm running for office and some have suggested it will bring material. That story was given to me on the porch of the Moose Lodge where I stopped in to shake some hands. We also shared this story that night.
