Oxygen Poem

I'd hold my own breath,
I'd hold it all day,
Oxygen's useless,
Is what I did say...
scuba tank
I don't need that gas,
It's so overrated,
I can live without air,
Is just what I stated...
(but then)
My face turned to red,
And next it turned blue,
My muscles got tired,
Had dizziness too...
Finally, finally,
I think I passed out,
'Cause I had a bad dream,
Heard oxygen shout,
Of your air,
I make about,
But I'm an important,
periodic table
From fish,
To plants,
It's life that I give,
Living things need me,
They need me to live!
So do me a favor,
Breathe deeply for me,
Stop holding your breath,
'Cause oxygen's free!

Oxygen is the third must abundant element and is essential in the respiration of living organisms. Oxygen is produced by plants, algae, and bacteria during photosynthesis, and along with hydrogen, it is the one of the elements that make up water.
