Life under melting Arctic ice

Life under melting Arctic ice

Walter pretended not to care
When his friends began dying
When his two sons began visiting less
And forgot that he was once their only family

Walter pretended not to see
how his hands began wavering
how his footsteps were a little shakier
And that his wife was no longer around to catch him

Walter pretended not to know
That what he began would soon be finished
And that the slow drip drip drip into the toilet
Was the Glacial meltwater of his life slipping away
