Water water everywhere so let's all have a drink
Water water everywhere so let's all have a drink is a popular non-rhyming poem often recounted by Sailors as a way to remember that, when trapped out at sea with no water, you'd be a fool not to realize that you are surrounded by the stuff. It is pure folklore that drinking sea water is bad for you, invented by GreenPeace to try and prevent the worlds fish from drowning. The poem is similar to other well known sayings like "Red sky at night, Vampire shepherds take flight" and "Oh fuck, I've been struck my lightening".
