Water Moves Along

Overflow of water down the street

Flooding the earth down below

The road cannot carry any more

It’s now far above my knees

Splash, the dogs play within

Causing horrible ripples around

Gathering a bucket full of water

The weight is over the limit

Crash, the pail falls back to the stream

Leaving the trail of dirt

To go swiftly past the dog

Unwanted is the river moving

Placing burden on people

Who collectively want it dry

Forever it seems it’ll flood

And tiring is the gathering

Transporting of the dirty water

Sighing the crowd gives up

Allowing the water push

Deep within their homes

In heartache and dying pain
