I have never seen the river bed so dry

Fish were lying on top of the riverbed because people were stealing the river’s natural water. Then the farmers needed to water their crops this fall. Canals are being filled with water from the river which is dry because it hasn’t rained in 576 days. There was no water being handed out in stores. No water coming from faucets. No one could get their hands on any type of water. The rich bought soda, the poor bought milk, and the weird bought applesauce. Once the stores were out of all liquids, the prices for everything went up, and now … no water.
