    Standing water
    Obviator of Essence
    Hope never springs eternal
    It just sits there
    Nothing to nourish
    No sun to evaporate
    No way to start anew
    Clear, fresh, and crisp
    That’s not possible
    Discolor, cloudy, and rancid
    Disease starts where negligence
    And indifference reigns supreme
    Something foul is afoot
    No longer standing it’s
    Stagnant Water

    This is dope.... no doubt about it... I challenge you to add a twist on it and everything that was negative now turns positive. I know you can do it. I think if you added that it would be much hotter then it is now. Don't get me wrong I think this is dope as heck.
