Cold

Water is a life necessity
So why do people treat
It like an accessory,
Life is dependent on
This steady supply
but that supply has been tainted, 
How can we prosper when we cannot grow
How can we forgive with no one to blame
How can we blame with no one taking responsibility
How can the world , 
a city, 
a government, 
a person
be so cold?
