Respect Water

For the One Day Water Poetry Competition. A poem all about the effects of water being wasted.


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




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.
