Chewing Tobacco Kills Just Ask Tony Gwynn's Family

One thing is as certain as the Sun will rise
Should not come to anyone’s surprise
Tobacco kills whether you chew or smoke
If you smoke a bystander gets exposed to this deadly joke
Chew and at least the chewer is the only one to die
Usually far too early years of life passing by
Plenty of ads about the evils of smoking for the youth to ignore
Chewing is under the radar its evils not underscored
Where are the photos of Tony Gwynn, Mr. Padre who was just laid to rest?
Salivary gland cancer modern medicine could not arrest
It’s cool to on a baseball field to chew a wad
Then in full TV mode spit out the juice on the playing sod
It’s cool six feet under in a coffin encased
Another cool life laid to waste
Chewing tobacco kills and pays a lower tax
Time to raise taxes on it to the max
How but some ads of a man chewing and then spitting
While a fox looks and then vomits might help guys in quitting
One is not cool only the complete buffoon
If one chews and uses a spittoon
