8 step purification


Passing by the water cooler,
I notice that the can is empty
Time to fill up...


Off I go to the water store,
Place the can and open the tap,
And let the can fill.


A quick thought comes up -
I need a splash protector.


The storeman finds one,
And tries it on without success.
Ahh, this can is old, he says
It's also getting dirty
Wanna buy a new one?


It's not much, and I say ok.
I buy the new can and hear,
The water overflowing from my old can.


Hey! I say.
What do I do about the water in the old can now?


Storeman camly flips the can
And lets the water drain.


I suddenly realize that every time I buy water
I am not actually paying for the water
But for the 8-step purification process it goes through.

End of which, it doesn't care
Whether it ends up in the drain or the can.
Wherever it goes,
It adds purity.

Back in the office,
Sipping a glass of pure water,
For the first time in my life,
I thank water.

And think of the 8 step purification process
I have gone through.

For free!
