To a smoker I meet everyday

Every day you smoke that cigarette of yours

Leaving the air around you full of toxic fumes

Which coil into a gigantic serpent

That turns its baleful eyes on my helpless form

And slowly, but surely, slithers towards me

Hissing evilly as it prepares to send me to my maker

Before rearing sharply, and plunging its barred fangs

Deep into my supine flesh

Leaving a pool of blood in its wake

A blinding pain grips my entire body

Threatening to obliterate everything else

As the venom begins its inexorable march

To every nook and corner of my body

Everything goes black

But not before I manage to glimpse your smug smile

As you lecture me on my work

As if nothing happened
