Necessary Adaptation

Don’t fix the shower

We’re glad it’s broken

Just use the cup

Pour water over your head

Lather up


Rinse again


Take all you want from the pail

There’s always more

Forget about the old days

Now we use rain

5 Comments on “Necessary Adaptation

  1. It’s amazing what we can adapt to. And what we realize we don’t need after it’s gone. Like circus peanuts and video games and cable tv.

  2. A coworker just brought his adopted daughter home from India where she was used to bathing with a pail and a mug. She liked the bathtub at first, but suddenly became reluctant/scared. He grabbed a mug from the kitchen and now bath time is the best thing ever.

  3. What a pleasant feeling after reading this post.
