They'Re Chlorinating My Water - Poem by Chuck Audette

they're chlorinating my water!
the tastiest in the state
they say it isn't them
but the board of health mandate

they're chlorinating my water!
I pleaded with them to wait
to see if the new holding tank
these problems might abate

they're chlorinating my water!
and this poem is just too late
'cause they begin to chlorinate
upon this very date!

so if your water's had a spate
of counts upon it's plate
act fast to mitigate!
to prevent the chlorine fate.

-From one who can relate.

And I realize that chlorine
will kill all the microbes, but
won't it do the same thing
to the one's inside my gut?

    You say that your water tastes like crap now,
    I just want to know, exactly when you tasted that,
    - - - never mind, just how!

    the authorities are in cahoots with bottled water manufacturers.
