The circle has an outside
And an inside, too.
Choose one side and you can do
Anything there, on that side.
But the circle knows
You won’t collide
With the other side.
Cold air in the atmosphere
Thin skin ‘tween you and pain.
You are safe on the inside.
That skin is on a plane.
Metal saves you from the deep.
Safe inside you live and sleep.
Outside warns, if you come, we’ll keep
You here, in the deep, blue sea.
Outside, he was a pleasant man.
Tipping his hat, waving hello friend!
Inside tortured an angry fraud.
Fiercely hating every God.
Spare no child by swinging rod.
This world’s upside down.
Outside man’s a clown.
At least he makes him frown.
And he won’t say good day! to the neighbors.
