Some Will Say....
Greenland is too close to the sun, some will say, the waterToo warm to be cooled by glacial ice fracturing into the Atlantic
Antarctic shelves melt in blue depths, shortening the march of the penguins
Stirring up maelstroms off African shores that bulldoze raw Gulf Coast cities
Built too far below these fast rising sea levels. Some will say
The islands of the Southern Cross lose their beaches to encroaching tides
And Los Angeles will mimic Seattle’s low cloudiness but some will say
“A pattern! A myth! Why, Global Warming is only a Fairy Tale!
“A few more degrees to heat the seven oceans isn’t that bad
“Greenland and Antarctica still make ice. It just thaws a little faster.
“So what if a polar bear has no berg to rest on?
“If Sandy drowns Wall Street how will the money ever stay dry?”
