From The Funny Side: One Hundred Humorous Poems, by Wendy Cope
GIVING UP SMOKING
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.
