The TruthThe Earth is a rhombus.The Truth8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's corners are hidden by mountain ranges,
It's sides are covered in oceans and deserts,
But you can find them
If you dig far enough.
What you know of as 'stars'
Are really unused OPEN signs
Of businesses that have gone under:
Enron is the north star,
Orion's belt is made up of
Oh, and dinosaurs never went extinct;
They just learned to swim.
At the bottom of the deepest seas,
The stegosauri graze, while
The T-rex chase the cuttlefish.
And you were probably told that
Humans are the most advanced species,
When really, it's the Porcupine.
They have a spare brain
In each quill.
By the way,
The internet really was
Invented by Al Gore.
The truth is
everything is better when you're a liar.
