Draft Manifesto for a Feminist Asthmatic in Aotearoa

 

For so long a feminist

e Hineahuone

Like the air that I breathe

Tihei mauri ora!

 

Feminism had become

e Hineahuone

Something I could take for granted

Tihei mauri ora!

 

This year I was diagnosed

Tihei mauri ora!

With a condition called asthma

e Hineahuone

 

So breathing is not something

Tihei mauri ora!

I should ever take for granted

e Hineahuone
