Endurance tested to limits,
More to it, than to eye meets,
No amount of modern amenities,
Negates fact of human entities.
Fahrenheits and wind chills,
Not just words for cheap thrills,
Human fortitude hardened,
While with other trials burdened.
Whims of cyclical nature,
Pillaged by human stature,
Reprisal is not her thing,
On ourselves, affliction we bring.
