I Just Found Out

I just found out the world is round.
I’d have sworn that it was flat.
Is that why there are rolling meadows
and other sites like that?

When I roll from bed in morning,
could I roll on to Japan,
And is it round like a big ball
or like an oblong can?

You heard of folks going over edge,
there is no edge on a ball.
The fact that they can do it proves
the world’s flat after all.

I've tried to solve the enigma.
I’m not a lazy scholar.
I have deduced it is both round and flat
just like a silver dollar.
