Magnetic North

Geologists have found evidence, the Earth's magnetic bearing
reversed course suddenly, but then no one was caring.

North and South repolarized in eons past in time.
Such changes now would not go well and hit us in our prime.

For it is our Magnetic Field which deflects the Solar Wind
and redirects the particles the Sun will not rescind.

Would both Auroras take a pause, if the poles decide to flip?
And Boy Scout navigation systems lose their fundamental grip?

What this could mean we do not know, but chances are not good.
For should the worst thing happen, well, there goes the neighborhood.
