Even if the cities on the coast
Are inundated by the rising seas,
Ravaged dunes and barrier beaches lost
To tides that top steel berms and stunted trees,
Heat reaches for the poles, and life goes on,
Devastated, yes, surviving still,
As in times past whole habitats were drowned,
Yet this time only by an act of will.
