Water shortage

Water Shortage 

I have seen the future 
Water famine and revolutions
Wars over water,
No not the kind of balloons 
Of water people throw at
Each other, nor
A wet t. shirt competition,
But real war with blood that
Runs into dry gutters 
Rustlers who kill animals for 
Their blood and leave carcasses
To rot in the field. 
Chilled blood with a chaser of water
Only the rich can afford. 
The unwashed masses, with
Plastic Jerry cans, overturning 
Water tankers, shower units 
Have been dismantled.
Yes, I have seen the future and it stinks.
