Pipe
 
  A pipe is like a Christian in many ways; sure it’s made o’ clay like a Christian, and has the spark o’ life in it, and while the breath is in it the spark is alive; but when the breath is out of it, the spark dies, and then it grows cowld like a Christian; and isn’t it a pleasant companion like a Christian?
            —Samuel Lover
