THEY TRIED THE TALL WATER FOUNTAIN

They tried the tall water fountain

and nothing came out.

They tried the

shorter

water

fountain

next to it, and there was a trickle

of water, but in order

to drink, they

had to

get

so

close

to the metal

spout, as to risk

touching it with their

lips. They hesitated,

before walking

away

thirsty.
