Water For All

The perfect mix for life

Feeds one, two, ten people

In a thriving city

A leader loved by his people builds an aqueduct

To give water to the people

They appreciate it

Call him Optimus

Good water for good living

A city in crisis 

A people in crisis 

While the leaders drink pure water

The people’s water is not just hydrogen and oxygen


Bad water makes bad living 

A city in debate 

Needs to find a good source for water

An aqueduct? A well? A cistern?

And from where would we get the water?

Charles or Long Pond?

We need good water for a good city

Water makes living, and living makes a city
