to drink from a dog's water bowl (here)

the 11 of 12 given words:
pushes escapes thirsty drive sound 
thank if exist party song wishes

the will to survive pushes the risks
it escapes limits of impending dangers

a thirsty throat drives caution
to the winds
no sound judgement better than
a full stomach

thank its lucky stars if food and
water exist close by

it may not be a big party of wine
and songs but just a lowly
water bowl to meet simple wishes

  1. The way a waterhole can both save and take lives is the fact of the laws of the jungle... eat or be eaten

  2. A matter of life or death? I felt that rabbit's dry throat.

  3. Such truth in your words here....when we are reduced to only survival mode we risk everything.

  4. Having those simple wishes nearby is good for all

  5. No need more basic than that for food and water. Well said, Hank. That looks like a hungry bunny for sure.
