The Values We Have

How much for a glass of water you ask,
How much can it cost, a few drops in a flask,
It’s a philosophical question, you must see,
Where in the world is this flask meant to be,
If in your house next to the sink and fancy faucet,
You will get it all free, with no income or profit,
But, if it was in the desert these water you seek,
With your tongue hanging out arid, dry for a week,
What price will you be willing to pay for such flask?
For a few drops of water, you will pay what they ask,
For value is set on things and items mostly for vanity,
How much water can one drink from a diamond, tell me,
What would you rather have friend, in the dry arid desert,
A necklace set around your neck; or some water to squirt.
