No Water No Hay Agua


What happens when there is no electricity? No power to generate the flow of water in our lives?

The hurricane of life comes,

The neighbours work together,

All children and able bodies,

Carry, fetch and deliver,

The essence of life,

In buckets, in bins, in bags,

Which ever way they can.

Our bodies thirst for the waters of life,

But too many are still left,

Digging, scrapping away at the surface,

Hoping to find a well,

To refresh their bodies, minds, hearts and souls,

The Father river toxic filled with waste,

The drains overflowing with rubbish,

The rusty pipes, broken and urgent,

Need of water life repairs,

A climate action of change,

An environmental human hazard,

What is the use of technology,

When the very basic need of life,

Is supported by water not No Water …

Investing in people or investing in machines?

Choices of life or no life …

As they bathe in the murky waters of,

Man made disease ridden lakes, rivers,

As the women wash their clothes by hand,

No water running from the taps,

No drinking water, No Water …

By Natasha

¿Qué pasa cuando no hay electricidad? ¿No hay poder para generar el flujo de agua en nuestras vidas?

Viene el huracán de la vida.
Los vecinos trabajan juntos.
Todos los niños y cuerpos capaces,
Llevan, buscan y entregan,
La esencia de la vida,
En cubos, en contenedores, en bolsas,
Como sea que puedan.
Nuestros cuerpos tienen sed de las aguas de la vida.
Pero todavía quedan demasiados,
Cavando, desechando en la superficie,
Con la esperanza de encontrar un pozo,
Para refrescar sus cuerpos, mentes, corazones y almas,
El río padre tóxico lleno de residuos,
Los desagües rebosan de basura.
Los tubos oxidados, rotos y urgentes.
Necesidad de reparaciones de la vida del agua,
Una acción climática de cambio,
Un riesgo humano ambiental,
¿Cuál es el uso de la tecnología,
Cuando la necesidad muy básica de la vida,
Es soportado por el agua, no hay agua …
¿Invertir en las personas o invertir en máquinas?
Elecciones de la vida o no a vida …
Mientras se bañan en las aguas turbias de
Enfermedades artificiales, lagos, ríos,
Mientras las mujeres lavan sus ropas a mano,
No sale agua de los grifos,
No hay agua potable, no hay agua …
