Copernicus - Poem by Gary Revel

The sun is the center he said
The earth spins and spins around
Liar they said the earth is center
You must be stopped gagged and bound

They persecuted this man who boldly said
The truth is truth to your disdain
And on his deathbed he held a book
The truth was there with his name
