Small Luxuries

Today I got hot water for a shower
Turns out in 11 degree weather, I turn into a hot water monger
Whoever thought hot water could have so much power
To make me want to shower for long and longer

It's these small unquestionable luxuries
That I totally take for granted
The assumption that there'll be hot water inside while outside the are flurries
Reminds me that the distribution of resources is indeed quite slanted

I think of Nigella Lawson cooking up a storm
Here we have no electricity or gas to cook food, only brew a hot cup of doubt
When's this shortage going to end? Where to get fuel from
It's something my privileged brain has never had to think about
