Some Unsettling Truths

Deprive me of water,

You turn me into a raging monster.

Deprive me of food,

I may forget what it means to be good.

Deprive me of air,

I will shortly ascend Heaven’s stair.

Deprive me of light,

You rob my gift of sight.

Deprive me of love,

‘Tis worse than all the above.
