When I was in the Navy
I learned
to put
the lighted end of a cigarette
into my mouth
and puff.
I amazed some folks
who wondered
how I could do this
and not get burned.

When visiting my grandmother
I showed her this “trick”.
She watched
and then remarked:
”I don’t suppose one end
is any worse worse than the other.”
