DIE-ing of Thirst

Children. 
Children bright and playful, now dull and lead filled,
My water can kill trees you and me
Can change brain chemistry of ours sons and daughters
Can alter our state of security
And confirmed the feeling that the governments not hearing me
As they refuse to see children suffer
As the lead buffers the bone structures of moms to be
And the brain their babies
As the people cry tragedy
Government continues their savagery
