Australia is the Size of Oregon

“Australia is the size of Oregon,”

said a man in a bar.

He was explaining how wildfires

were started by climate change activists

trying to prove a point.

What do you do with that statement as a writer?

As an Oregonian who owns a globe?

As a teacher who taught geography with maps?

As someone who believes the Earth revolves around the Sun?

Then the man went on how humans suck

and he can’t stand to see koalas burned alive.

Now that we can agree upon!

Can we build a foundation on that?
