Giving Up Smoking - Wendy Cope

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.

  1. Love Wendy Cope. Love this poem. BEING BORED is another good one. I used 2 of your selections in a workshop.
