What the flood is going on?
creeping, bubbling in at dawn
closing down beloved parks
do we need some Noah’s arks?
Whole neighborhoods collapse when
an avalanche of sludge creeps, then
the throat is dry for just a drop
contaminated all, clean H20 stopped.
Polar caps are melting now
causing us to argue, how
is global warming drowning us
slowly immersing the human race.
And now, the world is new once more
oceans, ponds and brooks restored
one borne creature swims alive
wet and happy in water thrives.
