Keep all dry. Quality of life
is in dryness. Any drink is poison.

Swimming is murder. Rainfall
is death. Protect yourselves.

Shelter your children. Ensure
their suits are watertight.

Physical relations with others
must be kept dry. Swapping liquids

means death for you both. Love
is dry. It is cracked and dust.
