Cheroot, who loved you
Who sucked you and left you
Every star is burned out
Every room is blackened

Who waved you with a flourish
In the heat of some propitious moment
Held you in their greasy hand
Stubbed you out on the edge of a can

Here you are at the peak of your powers
The tree of age and its creaky bowers

Who held you like a lover
Then left you for another
When you fell fragile and cold
Drowned forever in a toilet bowl

Happiness is fleeting my friend
You've got the half-life
Of a cesium atom to spend

Painted lips and starry night
Set alight
Seduced by the promise
Of that perfect kiss
You make nothing happen
It just happens to you
I know the feeling
My life's like that too
