Would the Sun Still Rise?

The tick of the clock
Tells the sun to set
And another tick
Bids it set.

The tide-chart on the chest
Tells the waves to crash
And astronomy
Pushes it back.

The star-map on the wall
Tells the planets to spin
And whereabouts to
Pull their heavy weight.

The book on the floor
Tells what thoughts to think
And why to think these thoughts,
In clear italic script.

Would the waves still crash
Would the planets still spin?
And the thoughts still think;
In their clear italic script

Without the how and who and why
The where and when and why
Without the small movements
Two small hands

Would the sun still rise in the sky?

I am certain that worlds will spin even if man is convinced it is flat.

I like poems that provoke thought. This did.
