Poem

It can take approximately 10 litres to drown an adult human
This is interesting information, for someone who spends most of their days soaking their insides
I have become a boat sailing between kitchen sink and toilet
You think I do not see you on your little island
You forget that the sea is huge
It encompasses and surrounds you
where do you think sharks learned their way of hunting
You do not know what lies beneath me,
Take my words for litter,
I do not say much, because i could drown you with the pebble underneath my tongue.
