Something in the Air Tonight - Poem intro: John Harper

“I can feel the tightening in my chest tonight –hold on!
I am reaching for my puffer and mask tonight –hold on!
Hold on!

I remember!
I’m worried!
How could I forget

The first time, the last time my chest got tight
Oh I couldn’t breathe, the thunder clouds were gathering
All around
And the pollen explodes unleashing its load of nanoparticles…

I can feel the tightening in my chest tonight –hold on!
Hold on!”
