The World Without WaterWe think we know the earth that mothers us,that maueersd and tested, dug and scraped,enhanced and developed, the planet improvesby our gentle exploitation, that we can makeall properties water-front—charming viewsof oceans, lakes, rivers, ponds, trickling creeks,springs, fountains, wind-whipped waves, ripples,and thundering falls.Even frozen tundra, icebergs, clouds, mists,thermal steam, gentle and torrential rains, snows,hail, sleet, flood, monsoon, and unbearable humidityare parents of forests, prairies, all things greenand varied, flowered and fruited, finned and winged,hooved and hopping, slithering, swimming, and walking.The planet can continue without any of this,another dirtball in the sky, but who would wantthis altered real estate, where blue is not blue,and green is not green?

Madam And The Phone Bill
To really get a sensation from this poem, one needs to read it in a Southern African-american voice. And i don't think its supposed to be analyzed in a metaphorical manner. Props to Hughes for his ability to input rhythm and style.
