Bears in the Pressure Cooker (Poetry)

Species fall to extinction every week
Of natural selection, scientists speak
But habitat destruction is caused by man
Who turns fertile woodlands to barren sand

Ozone depletes as gas poisons the air
And death watch begins for the polar bear
Fluffy, white creatures who romp in the snow
Seem perfectly fine at 50 below

The Arctic playground is disappearing
Glaciers and tundra are quickly clearing
Revealing the woolly mammoth’s remains
Sad echoes from the last Ice Age made plain

Preservation efforts now underway
But where will the rescued polar bears stay
If climate changes prevent the North Pole
From shifting to a site that’s polar-bear cold

In less than a century they may be gone
Perhaps only in children’s books they’ll live on
