Watery Lottery

Water, as most of you will know,
has the chemical formula H2O.
Now this essential liquid is, as well,
in its natural form, devoid of smell,
and also in its pure state,
it's clear and clean and really great,
for keeping living things alive,
as without it nothing can survive.
Yes it really is such magic stuff,
because without it things are really tough,
and it often makes me stop and think.

A great poem, so well written, sad but true, I`m sure most of us do take water for granted where rain is plentiful.

This is so true, Tom. I watched and had to fight the tears as John Bishop, comedian reported from another forlorn corner of the world where an eleven year old girl said she feared for her life because of the water she and her family had to drink. You could see John fighting the tears. How does our world tolerate such inequities?
