Water Water Water - Poem by JOE POEWHIT

Comes in a pill.
Have your fill.
All waters foul.
Acid rain with owls.
Can't ever have a drink.
My skin just turned pink.
Brain matter dull gray.
Melting like ice every day.
Don't feel very well.
Empty glass before me.
Rusty water - rent and key.
T.V. said, 'ALL IS WELL'.
Soda, beer - have your fill.
Doctor said, 'Your getting ill'.
Can't get off this earth.
Poison water - another dead birth.
Won't live very long.
WATER WATER - sing that song.
