WATER: An Experience

Written by: Adesina Idris Dolapo

Water! Water!! 
Water!!!
Water everywhere
Not a drop to drink
Nor a drop to water
The withering petals 
here.
Our patience is now 
on its brink
Cos we are in an 
endless queue
Infront of a solitary 
well
With little of this life 
saving liquid in it
One shouts, others 
take the cue
And make the place a 
hell
In a bid for all to 
have a share of it.

'Let's be patient', 
from the queue said 
one
'In the end this 
battle by us will be 
won.'
