1. Respect Water

 

Long cream-frothing baths 

      

Freezing fuming pools  

                                                                                       

Blood-thirsty cackling water fights

 

Glorious golden sprinklers starve

 

Lava floods cities, scolding

 

British rain despised

 

Nasty burning burdens blotch the sky

 

Pin pricks of water tick away their time

 

But nobody cares, not really

 

Meanwhile

 

Filthy devil dying water is all they have to drink

 

Puddles of desperate dirt are celebrated

 

The impossible decision: dehydrate or disease                                                                                                                                            

Parents watch their children die destroyed by lies we tell ourselves

 

Dangerous droughts devastates thousands                                                                                                                                                              

Whilst we worry about tax they despair over survival                                                                                                                        

Throats swollen screaming for the water we waste without a thought                                                                                                                                                                                                             

Whilst their sacred water suffocates under the sun

 

Just some spare change could save a life                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Recycle some water                                                                                                                                                                                       

Take a shower instead of a bath                                                                                                                                                                                     

Turn the tap off.       

 

Water is precious                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Treat it with a bit of respect.
