Streaking Toward Earth

Streaking Toward Earth

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Apparently, streaking toward earth

Is a large unknown object

Scientists say they don’t know what it is

But I must object


At the edge of flat earth

They have erected a powerful telescope

And as the monolith passes by

They will be throwing out a rope

Because it is composed of those

Who have tumbled off flat earth’s edge

A situation which is well known

But that no scientist will publicly allege


These are the lost souls

That tumble through space

All gathered somehow together

Hoping to rejoin the human race

They were not warned about

Falling off Earth into space

And scientists have declared this

A total disgrace


Now scientist’s and certain Politian's wait

With a corrallin cowboy and his long rope

To recapture these souls and their votes

Is their greatest hope

And although this rescue seems kina tough

Their greatest concern is

Whether the rope’s going to be long enough

Is it just me or does this poem harken to a vision of Trump supporters being convinced the earth is flat, then being told to teeter on the edge (all the better to watch a Trump rally). So of course many fall off the faced of the earth. Not being a man who plans, Trump neglected to devise any way for these lost souls to submit their electoral ballots in the recent election & now he's enlisted our mighty military to stand on the edge & try to net him some love. He's feeling very unloved right now. Even his hair has been left to grow out gray & his face is bloated with all the cheezeburgers he's been hogging since the election. I don't know where this is going, but I'm staying the hell away from that edge (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
