The algae continue to bloom

The Arctic is warming so fast

The Sea Ice will not always last,

And as sunlight breaks through this tomb

The algae continue to bloom.

 

The plankton absorb CO two,

Give oxygen to the deep blue;

But danger is starting to loom,

The algae continue to bloom.

 

For as the plants increase in size

The temperatures also do rise;

Absorbing heat from the sun’s plume

The algae continue to bloom.

 

Now caught in this Artic feedback

We find ourselves under attack;

Ensuring the sea has more room

The algae continue to bloom.
