Fortellinger om tobakk

"The pipe draws wisdom from the lips of the philosopher, and shuts up the mouth of the foolish; it generates a style of conversation, contemplative, thoughtful, benevolent, and unaffected."

 

- William Makepeace Thackeray

 

 

 

 

Calls

they know
where tobacco grows
and why I
forgot to put down the pants
I heard
the drowning underwater
I afraid
whether the outer limit
gets closer
I never 
put any elbow
in it
to play with water
to add some fire
and as a last caress
against the dark halfdom of space
I'll do my best
watch celestial bodies
and say I've seen it thousand times
I ought to guide you
toward necropolis
because I have two missed calls
both yours

- Andrew Name

"Pipe smoking is the most protracted of all forms of tobacco consumption. It may explain why pipe smokers are generally regarded as patient men – and philosophers."

 

- Jermoe E. Brooks

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Pipe Of Tobacco

Let the learned talk of books, 
The glutton of cooks, 
The lover of Celia's soft smack—O! 
No mortal can boast 
So noble a toast 
As a pipe of accepted tobacco. 

Let the soldier for fame, 
And a general's name, 
In battle get many a thwack—O! 
Let who will have most, 
Who will rule the rooste, 
Give me but a pipe of tobacco. 
Tobacco gives wit 
To the dullest old cit, 
And makes him of politics crack—O! 

The lawyers i' the hall 
Were not able to bawl, 
Were it not for a whiff of tobacco. 
The man whose chief glory 
Is telling a story, 
Had never arrived at the smack—O! 
Between ever heying, 
And as I was saying, 
Did he not take a whiff of tobacco. 

The doctor who places 
Much skill in grimaces, 
And feels your pulse running tic-tack—O! 
Would you know his chief skill? 
It is only to fill 
And smoke a good pipe of tobacco. 

The courtiers alone 
To this weed are not prone; 
Would you know what 'tis makes them so slack—O? 
'Twas because it inclined 
To be honest the mind, 
And therefore they banished tobacco.

- Henry Fielding

Tobacco Smoke

Tobacco smoke wafts through the air,
The only indication that you once sat there.

Of death and decay it does so smell,
This smell it makes me think of hell.

They say the odds are one in two,
I am really hoping the odds favor you.

But alas I know so many that roll these dice on their life,
And how, good friend, are you all supposed to be spared this strife?

- Farodo
