Adrian Lee composed a spoof (below) of an old hit song (above) while wheezing from the smog that recently blanketed the nation.

Dei! Ask me how I know
A-P-I is true
(Echo: haaaaaaze)
D-O-E replied
Particles outside
Better be inside

Dei! It’s that day you’ll find
Soot it makes you blind
(Echo: haaaaaaze)
When your throat’s on fire
Eyes they go ablaze
Smog gets in your eyes

So I cough and then I pant and gasp
Do drink till my bladder bursts
Yet again, the wind has blown my way
I am without my mask

Now wheezing friends they choke
Hills they’ve gone to hide
So I kneel and pray
Then hotspot burning flame dies
Smog gets in your eyes
