The Sea Level Is Rising

The Sea Level Is Rising

 

By Elton Camp

 

Back in the 1950s when I was a child

That sea level would rise seemed wild

 

Even those who thought that it might

Centuries into the future set that fright

 

It was only a concern for some distant day

But the reality has already come our way

 

The way polar ice melts at a faster rate

The problem will worsen early, not late

 

It is those who live very close to the coast

That from the disaster will suffer the most

 

Southern Florida may vanish into the sea

And we aren’t sure how soon that may be

 

Entire island nations are likely to disappear

Massive relocations we now have to fear

 

Those living inland in pleasure may grunt

For their property may become waterfront
