brownwaterWoke up this mornin’
My water was brown
This was quite disturbing
So I went to the water company’s website and it had very little useful information to indicate whether it was safe for me to drink it or not.

[Da na nah na nah]

I did find a leaflet 
In pdf format
Said discoloration
Was likely the result of a change in flow caused by a burst main or possibly firefighting activity that had stirred up iron deposits in the water pipes.

That would have been helpful
If just above it
There wasn’t a sentence
Explaining that white cloudiness is nothing to worry about and if you find your water to be white and cloudy it is perfectly safe to drink.

[Da na nah na nah]

So this is the problem
I’m telling you now
I’d drink the white water
Not water that’s brown because while it says explicitly that white cloudy water is safe to drink and gives a perfectly plausible explanation for the brown colour of my water this morning it does not say whether brown water caused by iron deposits stirred up by a change in flow of the water in the water main possibly because of a burst pipe or firefighting activity is safe to drink or not safe to drink, and that kind of sloppy copywriting would be bad enough in a blues song or some other inconsequential lyric or piece of collateral but in a leaflet purporting to explain everything you need to know about water quality in the Three Valleys area it’s pretty much unforgivable and this kind of thing makes me really hopping angry or at least it does since i stopped smoking and drinking and have to rely on the fucking brown cloudy water supply to keep my increasingly fat and greasy body alive, you fucks.
