We curse the water for pouring down

We blame it all for freezing

We curse it when it floods the ground

We curse it every season


We blame it when it collects in clouds

‘When it’s downpours steal our thunder.

We poison it with toxic waste

And rob it of its wonder


We pour crude sugar in each glass

to make it much more tasteful

We desecrate its purity

Abuse it and are wasteful


Taken for granted, what is vital to us,

May be part of our decline

Others can dis what’s 75% of them.

I will be grateful for mine.
