Culture from a Cigarette Packet

Sweet Afton Cigarettes
Sweet Afton Cigarettes

Words I read of Aftons waters
Green braes and other lines of Burns the bard,
On a packet of cigarettes
What funny places culture throws her card!

And from there more of Burns I read,
The more of his writings to read I desired,
For I am a poet, though not as good as he
I was and am by him inspired.

Culture from a cigarette packet…
Crazy the idea some wil call,
But I say its better be crazy
Than to get no culture at all!

Have your say...
