Tampa Arrested 22 Years Later After DNA on Cigarette Butt


We have known for years that smoking kills
Causes lung and throat cancer, strokes, and coronaries to morgues fill
Now time to add another warning to each pack
It may also cause arrests after a kidnapping and rape attack
James Byrd, a smoking rapist was linked to a discarded cigarette butt
22 years later due to DNA found on it, prison doors he will soon hear shut
Sadly smoking will still kill thousands and with second hand thousands more
Since smokers get addicted so quick the warnings they ignore
The smart ones who are criminals which is an oxymoron for sure
Will smoke with gloves on so no DNA traces on butts to insure
