Poetry With Pusha V : Why is there air?

Hello friends this is what I like to call Poetry with Pusha V. I know I know this is what you guys have been waiting for. You dreams have come true and no it is not a nightmare. Every once in a while I will drop a poem like cold fries in hot grease. Hehe sit back and enjoy. (Sorry No art right now lol. I am currently sketching.I will post some art soon like tomorrow.)

Why is there air?
Do I need it so I can eat my pear?
Do I need it so I can draw?
Do I need it in order to chase a mouse who is small?
Do I need it so I can dunk on a guy who is 11 feet tall?
Rising like a cookething cake.
