face of the clock
silvery you say
“What is the circumference of the earth?
The circumference of the earth at the equator is 24,901.55 miles (40,075.16 kilometers).
But, if you measure the earth through the poles the circumference is a bit shorter – 24,859.82 miles (40,008 km). This the earth is a tad wider than it is tall, giving it a slight bulge at the equator. This shape is known as an ellipsoid or more properly, geoid (earth-like).”
I look it up on a children’s geography webpage
my own stab at math homework
I see the earth like a chubby man being measured for trousers
round as a twirling ball
approximately 25 thousand miles which makes it easy–
the answer is four times
four times around the world
if you did not stop
if you had not stopped you
could say, “woo-hoo”
I have circled the earth
four times around.
