a desert will drink all it can,
more than you’d think,
and usually the bouncer gets involved.
You see, it doesn't drink often,
and usually binges when it does,
which (it’ll tell you)
is no big deal.
It takes time to cross a desert in the rain.
Of course there’s always someone to complain,
but if you had your ear to the sky (with a mind for the Big Guy)
you’d have seen the detour sign half a mile back pointing the other way.
