The Smoker's Lair

When wintry west extends his blast,
And hail and rain doth blow;
And the stormy north sends driving forth
The blinding sleet and snow:
We'll make our way to Stratford Place
And climb the mighty stair;
We'll chase the tang of scptch and smoke
To find the smoker's lair.

(with apologies to Robert Burns)
