Drinking Water

My, my, at Waterloo Napoleon did surrender.
Oh yeah, and I have met my distant need in quite a similar way...

It is hard for me to believe, but the gushing waterfall depicted in this painting is often just a dried up trickle.  Yet now there is abundance. 

Would that I were a dry well,
and that the people tossed stones into me,
 for that would be easier than to be a spring of flowing water that the thirsty pass by,
and from which they avoid drinking.
