Gasping Fed Up Ness

          Gasping fed up ness 
Next door plums of smoke engulf the air,
I can't breath, I cannot breath, I can not breath,  gasp. 
My lungs relinquish wearily to filthy, dirty, unhealthy plums of rude air. 
It's not free?  Gasp, gasp. 
Why complain? but I do
A stare; no care, unfair.
I flee for outside air, gasp, gasp, better now. 
So I pay rent to share second hand smoke, 
beyond frustrated, 
Beyond despair. 
I'm fed up with complaining to other smokers. Fed up. 
Freedom from air pollutants is a run I don't want. Fed up, fed up. 
Sprint to my car while my neighbour goes on puffing & exhaling &
damaging the air. 
Battle weary I am. 
I am fed up. 
Really fed up. 
Fed up

I appreciate your time.
