The Earth stops.
Then it starts again,
.backwards goes it except
,world the rule I Now
,way other the revolves Earth the for
.me around way other the
,right to left sway Swings
,up to down glide slides

,steak is Oatmeal
,soda is spinach
.candy new the is poison
,us scratch Itches
,deadly are goldfish
.drug miracle the is cancer and
,birds stalk Zebras
,lions hunt fish
.elephants eat to love cows and
,orange is Easter
,blue is Christmas
.heads little rats’ on stick yarmulkes and
,again stops Earth The
.goes everything normal to back and
For now the Earth rotates the right way again
