A sink with a slow leak
may never reach its peak
but the consequences will sneak
leading to outcomes that are bleak.
With the right plug the water will rise,
it may leave a stain right where it lies.
When it’s too late they’ll notice the cries
and they’ll fix that leak if they are wise.
The problem is not everyone knows
or wants to stop it so it just grows.
Eventually it overflows,
it’s the procrastination I suppose.
The key is having all the right tools
to fix any of those leaks and drools.
People who wait too long are the fools
that are left to dredge through toxic pools.
