Drink up California

I say lift your glass high

and as you do look

the politicians in the eye

mismanaged this drought

this time around

not sure what you’ll find

if you run for high ground

Drink up California

I say lift up your glass

for your  government

needs a kick in the (rhymes with glass)

the newest report

you can read it right here

Surgeon General states

“Drink your urine”  – hear hear

Drink up California

you might want to lower your glass

find a new kind of water

cows* are chewing dead grass

***

(*There is a new cattle urine collection system that provides “purified water)

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

    1. Its tragic and ridiculous. Californians know how to “do” droughts. However if you leave the spigots turned on in the North and South to water lawns then when water is needed for produce it cant be located 😦

      1. 🙂 I came across this weird cure back in the 90s … though the idea then was you were supposed to drink your own urine as it had your antibodies etc. I’ve never tried it personally … a little off putting in my opinion.

      1. It’s easy to blame the population … but in the end, they’ve been elected to administer the population and if they don’t then we should accept the fact that we live in anarchy and not have to pay good money to keep them in style … just saying.

  1. This is your best ever! What is happening in California is a microcosm of what is to come around the world, not only regarding water, but also food sources as the flora and fauna adapt to changing conditions, while we stick our heads in the hardpan.

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
