So Rob A Bank

The Earth is traveling around the sun

61,000 miles an hour.

That is so fast

no bullet on Earth

could catch us.


We could get away

with anything.

The cops

would never see us.

They would have to know

we were coming,

and be watching

from a long way off,

even to see the streak of color

as we went by.


However, to rob a bank

we would have to figure out

how to stop,

climb down,

go inside,

and ask for money.


Not so easy

starting out at 61,000 mph.

Once you’re up to speed,

as the Earth is now,


how would you stop the Earth

going around the sun?


Surely it’s more practical

to sit back and enjoy the ride.


Rob a bank tomorrow.

Happy New Year
