93 Million Miles Away, 'they' Say - Poem by Alice Perfect

93 million miles away
that is the math
the truth they say

how is it that
the sun at midday
is so much smaller
than the evening
full ray

light casting down
to the Earth at such angle
surely it's close
where it does dangle

Once as a kid I did not
get this, I made a model
that was approved by physicists

two small balls so far apart
like two pin pricks on a paper
and that's just a start

93 million
a humbling sum
a number so big
we must be dumb

I think it's close
and 'they' all lie
I'll guess I see it
the day I die
