Does Trigonometry Lie About The Sun? - Poem by Alice Perfect

I don't have all answers
but I have questions
and I never stop asking
in Truth I love basking

what is large enough to be seen,
right there on our heavenly screen
at 93,000,000 miles away? or
so 'they' say...

a model so preposterous
that is cannot be created
in space/ time

can you see a baseball at 20 miles?
why that is easier than seeing
the sun at 93,000,000 miles
away... or so 'they' say...

What does trigonometry say?
I'm afraid to share the answer.
It just won't 'sound right'
and so I say, nothing...
I just keep asking questions

oh yeah, and that 1000 mile
per hour wind that is 'velcro-ed'
to the Earth, let me ask more
questions...
and that wet tennis ball model...
'don't think' 'they' just want
us to believe...
oh, in a believe system, prepared
for us...
with no organic photos
not ONE
who controls that Hollywood
4th wall?
it's all about the ONE, isn't it
(! or?)

does a poet have license to
never stop questioning?

Let's be more poetic:

The great Nile~ the Nile~
that 1/4 that's 800 mile
- of flatness-

self-leveling water
doesn't matter cold or hotter,

would it not be running downhill
before the last, final big spill?

not centimeters
but thousands of meters

headed to the flat ocean
I know, just a silly notion...

or so 'they' say...
as they confound and prey

on god-given logic
and wisdumb

scientism
left off the list of
'great' religions

just listen to what 'they' say...
as instructed,
yesterday, tomorrow and today...
