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
