My masks show satisfaction, taste, and glamour,
Gifts from me, with manhood, grit and strength.
Why do the blind with my mystique enamor?
Regret and slavery lurk along my length!

My vapors strew the stench of gasping death,
Yet millions daily light and fondle me.
I plant disease and pain with every breath,
That young inhale and elders cannot flee!

Smoke and mirrors conjure up the mood
That hucksters loud and blatantly proclaim.
Though suffering and doom both darkly brood!
Are you able after this to guess my name?



Answer

A cigarette

The real "benefits" of smoking are slavery to addiction, along with sickness and agonizing death. Plus, smokers pay an ever increasing price for these "advantages" too!

According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 1.3 billion people worldwide are smokers. Around 5.4 million deaths a year are caused by tobacco. 1.2 million in China die from smoking related diseases. Over 443,000 Americans die from smoking annually; 50,000 of these deaths are caused by secondhand smoke.
