When the U.S. saves the world

I watched two disaster movies recently, Armageddon and Independence Day,
and I happened to notice
that when the alien mother ships are destroyed in Independence Day
and when the asteroid is blown to smithereens in Armageddon
and when people all over the world celebrate,
it is daylight everywhere at the same time:
Egypt and Australia, Iceland and India, China and Peru:
thus the glorious victory
of the United States
suspends natural law as well as belief
as we illuminate everyone
and it is daylight everywhere.

Yes, I wrote it. Didn't know it would turn into a poem when I started writing it.
