Polar bears can’t tell time

They can’t phone in their concerns or questions

Drifting in smaller circles, they simply worry

Worry their homelands are dwindling to mere droplets of water

Oceans are rising

Does anyone care?

Seas’ footprints are swallowing shores

We make small human adjustments

Sea walls, building higher, construction causing destruction as waterfront

Spaces are virtually all gone

Polar bears can’t erect a fix for the short term

They must travel far and leave their familiar to sustain life

Their young will be transient and fearful

Polar bears are worried, very worried
