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.
If there were no water
I’d never have learned to swim
Perhaps I would have drowned.
What would we drink without water?
Maybe we’d all drink whiskey
with breakfast, lunch and dinner.
We’d all be so drunk we’d fall
into the flowing river
On the way home.
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.
