“Just the way the Earth rotates on its axis, how far away it is from the sun. These are all very complex things. Gravity, where did it come from?”–Dr. Ben Carson, as part of an answer to the question “Do you believe in climate change?”

There’s a warp in time and space

A slope, or a declivity.

It wasn’t put there by God’s grace–

But relativity.

Explaining how the planets race

In orbit; the proclivity

To trip and fall flat on your face–

It’s relativity.

And if into a cavity

By misstep or passivity

You sink, it’s caused by gravity

And relativity.

And following that brief exchange,

Einsteinian digression,

Do you believe in climate change?

Answer the fucking question.
