One essential commodity far beyond price
and yet inaccessible for too many thousands
trudging for hours weighed down with containers
from remote muddy pool to primitive hut

gasp and lie lifeless.
Such scenes haunt.
Excess has an equal impact –
storms rage, rivers swell,
inundate rich pastures
destroy roads, bridges
