Medieval Flat earth poem

The poem "A Ship of fools" was written in 1494 as a satire. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_of_Fools_(satire)

It shows how people viewed the earth to be flat.

Here is the relevant verse

"If round the earth a man can fare,
What men live here, what men live there,
If undernearth our feet below,
Men walk the nether earth or no,
And how they hold their ground down there,
That they fall not into the air..."
