Sweet Water: Fetching the Water

Fetching the Water
Some get their water from turning the tap to the right
Others get water by walking in the blazing heat
Some must get their water by hard work and effort
Others get their water without a thought
Some get their water when it falls from the sky
Others bring water from a stream on a donkey
Some get their water from the river or the lake
Others buy their water bottled in plastic
Some get their water by just pressing a shower button
Others buy their water by a barrelful from a wagon
Some get their water from buckets filled by the rain
Others get their water from the pipes in their home
Some get their water by chance from a rain dance
Others sip at water droplets left upon the leaves
Some draw their water from the village pump
Others get their water from a nearby shop
Some get their water by digging a deep well
Others get their water by distilling the ocean
Some get their water from a mountain spring
Others get their water by walking and walking and walking
