Oh, for a cigarette

Oh, for a cigarette

   “There are soldiers who would rather go without something to eat and drink if only they have something to smoke... A hundred cigarettes in a church in which hundreds of wounded are lying, purify the air and lesson the horrible stenches.  He cries out, and it is a cry for tobacco.“
   Yes, in 1859 after the huge blood bath battle of Solferino, a humanitarian, Henri Durant, cried for help writing these words after observing the carnage and first-hand administering to the wounded.
   Today, a free man or woman cannot even hope to smoke an E-cigarette in peace. Good God! God might still be good, but what has happened to civilized man?
