I was born in Chicago
In the year 1970
When I was nine years old
I saw the news
about a meltdown
at a Nuclear power plant
in Southeastern Pennsylvania
I began to have nightmares
In which I was being chased
through a cornfield
by a cloud
of radioactive gas
running for my life
running for my life


is in the air for you and me
discovered by Madame Curie
tune into the melody

When Jerry Brown came around
I learned more about the sun
And its energy
Ten more years nest
I moved west
took the aqueduct
to the state house

I missed hearing Jerry say,
Protect the Earth, serve the people,
and explore the universe

In 2022
I was elected to
the 117th
and serve the 34th
