How kind of those explorers to leave so 
blank white space for us to fill 
at the top and bottom of our map

Considerate diggers in Pompeii too
leave much to be uncovered 
by the next blessed or learned lot 
who, armed with superior technology, 
will be better equipped to reveal the 
Roman, Greek, or Mesopotamian
Sorry bunch of hapless scribblers
At least we all do Yoga with Adriene

Yes yes, but what does it mean?

Map maker, map maker, make me a map
I'm thinking of breaking new ground 
As if marking a territory 
Is anything other
Than pissing on something we found
