The many                                       but only one air.


Toxic light is night light
when we should be in the dark
night and day make DNA just right
results from too much light are stark.

This ratchet weal no return
when big fossil fuels we burn
too much light and see oh too.
We awash these devils’ due.
There is only one air.


There is only one air.
No air other anywhere.
So if to planets far we go,
life we take from Mother there to grow.
There is only one air.

Atmosphere universal just is where you live.
Khayyam arts it well by “inverted bowl”.
Take care to husband Mother Earth contrive.
Do all you can by going green to help us all survive.

Avogadro 6.02255 X 10* you see
N78, O21, Ar-CO2-H-He other rarity,
bits of moisture make air of purity
with smoke or stink of any kind it is time to flee
There is only one air.

*to 23 power


Most valuable thing to will an heir
is a green planet full of pure air.
If you not bequeath it
your loves will bereave it.
There is only one air.

If good air you not will
your bounty will be swill.
All money and jewels you wrought
will all be for naught.
There is only one air.

Breathe your last breath from pure air
leave Earth just like you really care
so man’s kind can continue on
and love your being said scion.
There is only one air.

Nine billion

After next the breathe you take
nine billion yous in three minutes make
unless you in brief they imitate
will surely all asphyxiate.
There is only one air

Ladle in your air out of one pot
one air is all our Earth has got
nine billion all three minutes use it
from common fluid we can’t refuse it.
There is only one air.

From 90 secs. ere you breath in and out
to 90 secs. after 9 billion all nations
the same act will do without any doubt
cats and cattle, snakes that rattle, same obligations.
There is only one air.

About living in air, this how it reckons:
nine billion people every four seconds
inspire air in and expire it out
no matter one’s riches no matter our clout
’tis vital function we can’t live without.

Not alone in Earth’s atmosphere
others take air clearly as dear.

You live in the air

You live in the air; it is all around you
but the amount you use will just astound you.
One gallon of water all you need so they say
5000 gallons of air your need every day.
There is only one air.

Life with water but without any food
gives us one month to live and to brood.
Life without water five days our limits.
Life without air stays only five minutes.
There is only one air.
