We’re not the cause of water woes

Mary Moodie, Plumstead

We’ve done our best

To play the game

But they make out

We are to blame

We carry buckets

Buy water tanks

For all our efforts

Do we get thanks?

They up our tariffs

And cause us stress

We’re not the cause

Of this big mess

The less we use

The more we’ll pay

They’re cheating us

In every way

And now the winter

Days are near

They make the cost

Of power too dear

Some shady deals

That made them fail

And now we’re conned

To foot their bail!
