I wonder if you wonder
Why the ice is getting thinner,
Why the water’s getting warmer,
Why the seals are somewhat slimmer?

I wonder if you wonder
Why there’s now a sea of plastic
In a home that’s so monastic?
Now the situation’s drastic.

I wonder if you wonder
If it’s simply mankind’s blindness
To beauty and to timelessness
And Arctic’s sacred wildness?
