the elementary school globe
was perched motionless for years
in my bedroom because the elementary school
has long thrown up their arms to buzzing machinery

well, neglect grows old and everyone knows it
especially China, having so long faced the wall
one day, the world fell from it's metal stand
and rolled across the floor

at the time, i couldn't help but
wonder at God's mysterious signs
there are people in this world (you know and i know)
who would point out the finger prints on the Atlantic
