Rotation



An anticlockwise circuit we were advised so 
climbing the hill was revisited and we tried it 
this other way, quite handsomely paying the
dues we’ll admit - so we were warmed again 
within parameters colder winter days usually 
mitigate; but science said we’d greet the sun 
a whole lot quicker than on the regular track, 
because we’d literally backtrack its rotation 

Which took a bit of thinking & while climbing 
the steepest part of the path - our breathing 
stressed a mite ragged with tendons on fire 
and th’ maths soaring into ether we’d never 
lent any respect, actually remembered who 
it was that did the rotating around whom
