That sinking feeling

The boat is filling up!
They bailed and bailed,
As the hull sat lower in the drink.
Fetch a bigger bucket! Shouted one.
Fetch another bucket! Bellowed another.
Build a pump! Yelled a third.
Build 2 pumps! Screamed another, seemingly for attention more than effect.
All the while, the taps remained full on.
