Water…

It has been raining constantly lately. I must be really tired of it. It is obviously getting to me because yesterday I wrote this very ‘serious’ poem about water. Ahem!

Water is an essential element

They say I’m 60% water
I thought it was more, still
Water is an essential element.

PERHAPS I WOULD HAVE DROWNED

If there were no water
I’d never have learned to swim
Perhaps I would have drowned.

MAYBE WE’D ALL DRINK WHISKEY

What would we drink without water?
Maybe we’d all drink whiskey
with breakfast, lunch and dinner.

WE’D FALL INTO THE FLOWING RIVER

We’d all be so drunk we’d fall
into the flowing river
On the way home.

WE WOULDN’T HAVE UMBRELLAS.

Without water there would be no rain
We wouldn’t have umbrellas
And would get soaked through and through.

P.S. I’ve been writing this blog for a long time. You may enjoy this old post, ‘Favorite Sayings’, dated June 8, 2012. Just go to the upper right where the eyeglass is and type in the name.

  1. I love the logic in the idea that if there were no water, there would be no rain, and therefore no umbrellas, and therefore we would get soaked! Makes total sense to me…

    • What are you talking about? It is perfectly obvious that if there were no umbrellas due to the lack of water, you would get wet when it rained! What’s nuts about that???

    • I certainly prefer the rain to snow or ice, but it hasn’t stopped for a long time. This, is, after all, a rain forest.
      You know me, in the summer, I’ll complain about the heat, and you’ll tell me to stick my head in half a cold watermelon. Chuckle. Love, Muriel

  2. Oh, my! I just can’t stop smiling as I read along this post. Why do you always make me smile (or laugh on some of your posts)? 😊😊😊 I hope the rain stops. But still, stay dry.

    • Ah Adelheid: If I succeeded in making you smile or laugh, I’ve accomplished what I intended. I needed to make myself laugh too and I did when I wrote that nonsense. It is still raining, but that’s okay. Cheers, Muriel
