Solution by John Michael.


Like a map projection
The whole globe is showing
The 2 poles suffer from distorsion
Some shapes and sizes are best looking
For mapping the world
In 3 dimensional mapmaking
The triangles divide the spherical surface ,
Like a painting ,
With the earth
A love story never ending
