They who poison the well

there are those

who draw from the well

taking only what they need

they are not those

who spill waste around

creating mud

that gets everything in a mess

& then

there are those that poison the well

they will deny this

but that is what they do

& no matter what you do

drain it

clean it

attempt to counter the poison

the well

is done

will never be the same again

all you can do

is to walk away

find new wells

sources of life giving

water

exile the poisoners

from your midst

for having struck once

they will strike again

& if you do not do this

one time

they will

poison you
