Water Wars

I keep a sharp eye on water wars.  We have this problem building in America, too, though it's not causing much actual bloodshed yet.  In Kenya it is.

How long have I been watching this topic?  Since I was little.  It got really sharp in junior high, the first time I went out west. And the problems are just getting worse.  Water is civilization.  No water, no civilization, no historic exceptions.  People living outside their local water budget or actively destroying water sources make me extremely uneasy.

What I Have Written

"After the Sauna" is a freebie poem for this session. I think it would be rated "spicy" for nekkid people and insinuations of forthcoming sex.

"A Nap Under the Stars" is written in unrhymed quatrains and features Eqar taking some children out for starwatching.
