Polar Bear Drowning

Polar Bear Drowning

Why is the polar bear drowning
in a warm and iceless sea?
Robbed of his habitat
because of man’s love affair
with incessant debris
A cornucopia of excess
and disregard for habitat
Instant gratification
taking priority
Blame the autocrat
Winter now lingers
where once was Spring
Snow covering the plains
in April, with nothing for 
the Arctic king
His kingdom is melting
as the seas do rise
The Polar cap shrinking
Hurry and help this planet
Dying before our eyes
Yearning for leadership
to acknowledge a catastrophe
Save the seasons
and our planet
It will end in tragedy

National Poetry Writing Month
NaPoWriMo - Day 25 - April 25th
Today’s prompt (optional, as always). Taking a cue from our
video resource for the day, and from Keat’s poem, I’d like to
challenge you to write a poem that:
Is specific to a season
Uses imagery that relates to all five senses

(sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell)
Includes a rhetorical question,

(like Keats’ “where are the songs of spring?”)
