She In Norilsk

I cringe,
I recoil,
I weep;
But I am a human being:
I eat,
I drink,
I sleep.

The ice melts
To supply our need.
The world turns,
Upon our unending greed.

Bears drift alone,
On broken ice.
Lions are hunted,
In reserves.
All of life
Seems to pay a price
For the bill
Humanity deserves.

But the day of reckoning
Is not for the world.
The world knows revival.
Look to you, human.
To your children,
And our survival.
