AS THE WORLD TURNS

Updated: Oct 29, 2023


As the world turns

Which Way does it turn

clockwise, or

counter clockwise

Would that be wise

If otherwise?

Would that be backward

Or awkward?

Truth be told

What if I were standing on the

South Pole?

What if it didn’t turn at all

Or just on Sundays

Then back on Monday

Would it be Tuesday

Saturday or Sunday?

Yesterday?

Perhaps again

Or perhaps Noneday

Or Maby Nonday

Then

When would be my birthday

Or yours

Someday?

Perhaps never?

Never again.


Someday

Perhaps we’ll give it a try

Give it a spin

Like the carnival it is

What have we got to lose

Or win?


Some days I wonder

What day it is

It’s today

Always today

Silly it’s the day before tomorrow

Or the day after yesterday

Or just the next day

today again.


Why does it have to turn

Any way?

Turn turn?

Why not

Stop

At least for a little while

That would be unique

Different

Or eternity

So so many questions to speak of

Or not

I’m feeling dizzy!

Who turns it? The man in the moon, silly.
