No Person is a Snowflake

Written in response to a discussion in my Christian Ethics class as we discussed climate change; with apologies to John Donne.

No person is a snowflake entire of itself; every person
is a piece of the glacier, a part of the main;
if a piece of the glacier be washed away by the sea, our climate
is the less…
All climate change diminishes me,
because I am involved in our climate.
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
