National Poetry Day Message Poem by Toby Hendrikse

Apology to a Polar Bear


Sorry Polar Bear

I am very sorry, Polar Bear

that we’re destroying your snowy lair,

making it a struggle to raise your cubs

while we sit back looking like mugs.


Sorry Polar Bear

Your powerful legs take you a long way

while your cubs sit and lay

waiting for you to bring them food

to put them in a much better mood.


Sorry Polar Bear

Sorry you strong, white beast

as we sit here having  a feast.

Your icy world is at stake,

purely because of our selfish mistakes.


From Toby
