Giving up smoking 7 March 2006

Posted by Sasha in Lights, Mild & Reds, Quotes, The Brooder, The Coffee & Nicotine Addict.

Wendy Cope
[21 July 1945 – ]

There’s not a Shakespeare sonnet
Or a Beethoven quartet
That’s easier to like than you
Or harder to forget.

You think that sounds extravagant?
I haven’t finished yet —
I like you more than I would like
To have a cigarette.

“People who have never been addicted to nicotine don’t understand what an intense love poem it is.” Wendy Cope
