Road to Refreshment

 (for all asthmatic patients)
The heart is the engine
                  Of the body
The flesh is the bonnet
                 Over the engine
The blood is the oil
                 That is lifesaving
Your hormones are the bus stops
                  Over that bumpy road
                     That is: life.

Your heart is the centre of your body
Your nose gave you over
And handed you to the grip of dust and soot
Your lungs are the straws to refreshment:
                     Life without pain.
Life without pain awaits you
It is on the next bus stop for you to encounter
Take heart...
I feel your pain
