Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
A cigar is like a wife!
Put it up to your lips, and light it;
When you’ve learned to do it right, it
Adds a certain zest to life
Mind you keep on puffing it,
Or it’s out, and can’t be lit.
Ah, the aroma!
Ah, the glow!
Will I have one?
Thank you, No.
            —Aleister Crowley
