Say Ahhh

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 16 January 2022, instant.

When my best friend’s wife left him, unwilling,
He became a recluse, it was chilling,
Cigarettes… instant coffee…
Lots of smooth, creamy toffee…
When she went back he needed ten fillings

      • The average pk of cigs in the US is 6.96. that would have cost me 49 a week and then you can imagine in a year,
        nope talk about an expensive habit.

        • When I used to smoke, I set a limit of one carton (10 packs, 200 cigs) per week, and even then, gave up completely when that carton cost went past Β£20. As far as I can tell from one of our grocery sites, they are now at least Β£10 per pack of 20, and the branded cigarettes are more like Β£14.

          But, you know, that’s probably how it should be. It’s funny, though. When you have a society which is engineered such that the only valuable commodity is money, the only option you have is to tax people.
