Tobacco


His unnatural death a suicide
He was so happy and wealthy, people knew
But what prompted him for this drastic step
People in different version, and talked.

He was a poor man in his youthful days
worked hard to achieve success
A young man with hard working talents
People loved him so much.

His education was only primary classes
His happiness was in literacy he gained
Worked hard for fluency to read and write
where also his achievement was such speed.

The skill he got in calculation and arithmetic
Used in the real estate business he tried
Luck was always in his favor and earned
A heavy sum of money with properties worthy

He was a habitual smoker and tobacco user
Always in his lips a burning cigarette
Or with chewing tobacco to ease the strain
Which caused cancer in his lungs and pain.
He opted for the drastic step that to suicide.
