The earth has got to be flat
And I’ll tell you the reason why
Because people living in Australia
Are looking up at the sky.
If the earth were spherical
No way that could have occurred
Since they would be down under
And that I cannot picture.
As a sphere I would imagine
They would never see the sky
But since the earth is really flat
Anyone can see the reason why.
I know that you are laughing
And you think that I am mad
But having carefully studied this
I find it more than just a fad.
Those so called photos from NASA
Had me fooled a long time
But I discovered it was just a trick
To mess around with my mind.
As you know and I know too
A sphere has a shape like a ball
So that people at the bottom of it
From it would likely fall.
But since the earth is truly flat
That is not the likelihood
For nobody has ever fallen off
As on a sphere some really would.
On a clear and cloudless night
Take a good look at the moon
It bears the shape of a simple disk
So it’s flat you can assume.
Extrapolate that to the earth
And you would see just what I mean
Like the moon the earth is flat
And not round as many have deemed.
The people in Columbus’ day
Were definitely of the right notion,
Columbus never proved them wrong
On account of the size of the ocean.
You see the oceans of the earth
Are huge beyond our measure
But we pretend to know their size
And also their hidden treasure.
We have swallowed Columbus’ lie
Even though reality says otherwise,
It is so stuck within our minds
That flat earth believers we despise.
Draw a picture of the earth
Then draw the people on the sides
Now examine what you have drawn,
Reality and fiction you’ve reconciled.
Do you see the ones at the top?
They are likely to stay in place
But very few do live in that spot,
Why, that would be a colossal disgrace.
For that is one of the coldest spots
That not many people would inhabit
So if the earth were really round
Not many people would be living on it.
Those along the sides and bottom
Would long have fallen off
Unless of course they are stuck with glue,
At such I would have to scoff
I know that your glue is gravity
That is the reason you would give,
But with those at the bottom upside down
How would you expect them to live?
The final point to make is this
You argue that the earth is spinning,
Stop for a moment and think about that
By now you must be grinning.
Already you have a problem
So that you have to stick people on,
Add to that a spinning earth
And those at the top would soon be gone.
“Put on your seat-belts everyone
You are in for a turbulent ride.”
I’m just joking; there’s no need for that,
The earth is flat: no bottom, no sides.
If you must, be enthused and amused
But please don’t be confused.
You can believe whatever you choose
But please don’t fall for Satan’s ruse.
He knows how to enthuse and amuse,
He knows how to bemuse and confuse,
His objective is to misuse and abuse
Until the hope of salvation you lose.
