(With apologies to Jethro Tull)
Standing in a store aisle
Scanning bottles with jaundiced eye
Thirst's gumming up your throat
But spending cash on water gets your goat
You see it's made by Pepsico;
Corporate America always gets you low.
Your sister said they're draining Thailand
making filters from old socks and sand.
But you're feeling so thirsty,
so you bend to grab a bottle
you find it's cool and tempting
in your hand.
The plastic label's blue like honesty
and the text is quite impressive:
local waters put through HydRO-7 purification
sounds like the best in all the land.
Low in salt, chloride, metals,
it's treated with active carbon,
reverse osmosis and ultraviolet,
this water's sounding grand!
