It can be fatal:

not being able to breathe.

Regret is to fail at the trivial

without even realising it.

While lungs are being well fed,

people still suffocate.

Surely something is being misread

perhaps an instruction or caution.

Yet when pondered, it seems unlikely

that each who had gasped, got it wrong.

Maybe it’s the lyrics of the song

which are to be held accounted.

Try breathing with your eyes closed

and laughing with your ears shut,

maybe suffocation will cease to occur

when both body and mind will concur.
