Instructions For Desert Dwellers Day 22 NaPoWriMo

When you consume, don’t be too greedy
as our water is vanishing. So there’s enough,
let your lawns die, your golf courses turn brown,
and forget lavish floral displays. Red stone
is nice, so little upkeep with just a few large
white rocks and a cacti or two.  

When you consume, don’t be too greedy
as the water is vanishing. To last beyond
this century, take short showers, use car
washes, exchange the old-fashioned washer
for a low-water front-loader. And keep
avarice at bay. It’s a built structure that
will never support the whole.

When you consume, don’t be too greedy
as the water is vanishing. Remember the
shared bath, saved mop water to refresh
house plants, and the refreshing shade of a favorite
fishing hole. Don’t join the  hands-off attitude
of the elite. It’s important to acknowledge
that death is a deal-breaker.
