It's in the Water

Story by the same name coming here soon…


It's in the water,
they always say.

But who would have thought,
it would come so easy,
it would come this way.

Armageddon.

We all knew the water was bad,
science would save us;
it's all we had.

But science can go wrong,
like the flip of a switch.

Our life was heaven,
and now it's a bitch.

Water was our lifeblood,
our source, our tool.

We thought it would last forever,
but science made us a fool.

With no time left,
we huddle and pray.

But water is thicker than blood,
to our last day.
