A polar bear, massive and beautiful

Lying dead in the Arctic, starved to death

Global warming, melting ice, it didn’t have a prayer

A puffy cloud, with fur so white

Slumped and isolated on the ground

Waiting to be found

The photograph I saw of this

It truly broke my heart

If only we would do our part

To help our world from falling apart

It’s unfathomable in the near future

Polar bears will no longer swim in the ocean

Or roam the Arctic, they will be extinct

Prehistoric fossils frozen in the sea ice

And sprawled out across the land
