Delphi’s shoulders are now much smaller
thus do not hold up the world anymore.
At least she asked for help
and we all pitched in to steady earth’s orbit.
We took turns spreading liniment
on achy muscles we could not reach ourselves.
Delphi made a schedule
so not everyone would help the same day.
Tomorrow we must realign the planet
so Wisconsin is not at the equator.
