Refreshing and cool, clear and crisp,
Water should always be at the top of my list.
It’s just what the body hungers for first,
And for workouts or hot days, it’s the best to quench thirst.
It satisfies and nourishes in so many ways,
You’d think it’s what I’d reach for at the end of my days.
Alas, I must confess that instead what I do
Is reach for water turned into a brew.
It’s always the same: “Just one for today”
But as soon as it’s consumed I get carried away.
As the cans begin to stack and the fun buzz begins,
The memory of the hangover starts to sink in.
And though I am reluctant and try to not care
I know in my head I better prepare!
Guzzling some water at first is a chore
As the plain taste suddenly seems a bore.
But as the beer buzz is gently washed away
And sleep comes comfortably to bring a new day,
I think just how good that water did taste
And the miracles it worked in avoiding the next day being a waste!
