THE RIVER

 

Once there was a river;

The water in it was fewer.

But it was clean and clear;

Its sound was good to ear.

The man guarded it for satisfaction;

And he saved it from corruption.

Everybody wanted to be the first;

To drink water and quench his thirst.

And then came the modern world;

Water is precious they were told.

If you keep it clean good and nice;

Make it corrupt, you will pay the price.

Now the water was in large quantity;

But it had lost its old quality.

Man corrupted it and made it dirty;

There was no water for who was thirsty.

He thought that he was very bold;

But he forgot what was foretold.

Once from a ship the man looked around;

A wave came and he gets drowned.
