THE ANIMAL SPIRITS

REFLECTION OF THE POLAR BEAR

RATS, COCKROACHES AND POLAR BEARS

 The sun grew hot in the Arctic

Toxins rose from the ocean floor

Habitat  destroyed

Driven to extinction

Unaccounted for.

Once on land I searched for food

I couldn’t find it anywhere

Ignored on the Ice – Invisible on Land

The humans did not care.

~~~~~

I’m left to seek help from low places

Among garbage and poisonous air

“Come dine with us, we have plenty to share”

said

The rats and cockroaches

of the dumpsters and landfills

To The Earth’s

Last Polar Bear.
