Water! Water! Water!


(Water is precious!)

Some arrogant moneybags
believe wine act as water!
Alas, we can say-
Truth remains further!

Imagine to live
without water!
Your whole existence
will be of a 'kingly beggar'

All money
will be a notional paper!
Alas, your untidy clothes
won’t make you dapper!

As Food
may be in shortage
Taste buds
will be a sheer wastage!

Unwashed bodies
will bring murmur
Because perfumes
won’t take away that odor!

Plants and animals
Will become vestiges of nature!
You would have nothing
But dead or famished neighbors!

There won’t be sea
Or bustling harbors!
You'll long for nothing
But, 'water, water and water'!

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
