Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

Is the energetic spirit of life.

Without it, would rage a long, endless strife!

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

Used to wash, drink, cook and clean,

But don’t overspend it else you’ll be called mean.

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

Sustaining life-terrestrial, amphibian and aquatic-

Its kingdom stretching from the Arctic to the Antarctic.

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

The source helps plants to flourish and supports irrigation,

Flowing and covering the land’s aberration.

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

Absence and excess pave way for famine and flood,

Yet the preserver of life isn’t thicker than blood?

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

Continuous is the rotation of water- the water cycle,

The reserve taking form as vapour, crystal, liquid and icicle.

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

In the future, a trickle may be difficult to find.

Don’t forget that it lets the ecosystems to bind.

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

The vast, salty oceans and little rivers cover a per cent of seventy-one.

But you don’t realise that when you’re splashing and having fun.

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

Don’t fret; water is a source that we can renew,

But the purity and flawlessness won’t be anew.

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

Would you want a future where rivers flow black?

Having lots of chemicals with cleanness and potability which lack…

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

Beings writhing in pain and clouds pouring acid,

This futuristic scene is never bearable or placid.

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

Now, would you want this cold, bleak future-

Where even a little mistake is difficult to suture?

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

So, listen to these words of intelligence,

And do not give in to the realm of reticence.

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

Don’t let the taps leak and seep,

Else you’ll have no choice but to weep.

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

Don’t let the water stagnate, it lets mosquitoes to breed,

And remember to use wisely or you’ll fall for greed.

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Found in the brimming seas and the overflowing sink,

Don’t linger on thoughts, act now

Show the world to do what, when and how.

 

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

I hope my piece of writing made you stop and think.

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink,

Now’s the time to do, why wait till the brink?
