Due To Human Beings - Poem by Francis Duggan

Many species of wildlife are now endangered and one of those the great white Arctic bear
In the wild state they are facing extinction according to World Wildlife watch they are becoming rare
Due to Climate Change the Arctic Winter shorter and the ice they need to hunt on far too thin
Just one more life form that has become endangered in Global warming who can hope to win
Not human beings we too may face extinction though without us life in the World will go on
Our bad environmental practices may have hurried on Climate Change too late now to regret the chances gone
Had we been kinder to our Earth Mother who feeds us it well may be a different World today
Perhaps we have sown the seeds of our Karma and that does seem a sad thing for to say
But Mother Earth she will live on without us the one destined to live forever more
The unheralded ruler of the World she feeds the life forms of Sea and Land and Shore
New forms of life always evolve in Nature that's how it is and that's how 'twill always be
Nature outlived the dinosaurs who preceded people and Nature will outlive humanity
The Polar Bear on the brink of extinction the shorter Arctic Winter on them taking toll
Due to human beings bad environmental practice 'twould seem Climate Change is now out of control.
