Dam Leaks

by Alex Steelsmith

“Amsterdam, with its scenic canals… is slowly crumbling…
Many of the wood pilings have shifted, cracked or collapsed under the pressure,
causing the bridges and canal side walls to sag and crack. Water then seeps in…”

Hurriedly, worriedly,
Amsterdam, Netherlands
seeks Little Dutch Boys with
tiny physiques

willing to offer their
knuckles to plug all the
Amsterdamn leaks.
