If you’re thirsty, have a drink.
There are two kinds, you know, one
Is on the shelf, and the other is
Below the counter. So you’ve begun
To look around, to switch on lights.
Sometimes, you don’t even know that
You’re thirsty, so keep alert. Worse,
You’ll crawl and twist the thermostat
Because you’re ill, you never figured
You’re ill because you’re dry, you’re dry
Because you emulated pocket mice,
So drink, then help some passersby.
