Poem by Wendy Cope

HE TELLS HER

He tells her that the earth is flat —
He knows the facts, and that is that.
In altercations fierce and long
She tries her best to prove him wrong.
But he has learned to argue well.
He calls her arguments unsound
And often asks her not to yell.
She cannot win. He stands his ground.

The planet goes on being round.

Sometime ago I was reading someone’s Instagram post and they had this poem posted by Wendy Cope. I thought in this time of us all being drowned in a pandemic and many of us divided by our political views and fears; this poem fits snuggly into our lives. No matter what happens between us humans the planet goes on being round.

Poet, Wendy Cope
