What Goes UP Must Come DOWN!

Even though we're on the face of the Earth
for what seems like forever.. it is actually
merely a Tick of the Geological Clock.

What seems solid and unchanging beneath
our feet is actually solid rock being kneaded
like bread -- folded, baked and thrust high
into the air, only to be brought low again
crushed beneath the weight of water, time
and gravity -- then recycled once again.

The Earth yearning for Uniformity (flatness)
"Slump", "Creep", and often "Tumble" are
merely just another Force of Nature. smile

It brings to mind the George Carlin Rant
about people choosing to live on the edge
of a Volcano -- who are shocked when they
wind up having Lava In the Living Room! smirk
