Amazing Place

What a concept! It could only be science fiction,

Waking up to find yourself on a mysterious ball in

Space, spinning at over 1000 miles per hour and

Heated by a ferocious fire-spitting nuclear furnace.


Surely the work of Steven Spielberg? Nope, it's

Not. It's home to all of us. It's where we live, fight

Our wars and conduct our daily lives. Isn't that

Amazing? Just like living in a thermionic valve/tube

With a vacuum for company, a heater and a gas

Cloud that we spend a good deal of time polluting.

An amazing place of true atomic wizardry.


Doesn't it make you feel safe?
