Dead Water
By Mary Hunter Austin

At midnight drink no water,
For I have heard said
That at the stroke of midnight
All water goes dead.

You may drink the moment after,
Or the moment just before,
But it's better to be cautious
And wait a moment more

Till the clock is finished striking
And tomorrow is today-
Or you'll drink dead water
And wither quite away
