The Handicapped Explorer's Handbook

Anywhere on earth is lame
When it comes to travel boasts.
The whole point of travel tales
Is to, (a) claim one has gone
Where no one has gone before
And, (b) explore the unknown
Whole of the knowable world.

Earth is known and explored, down
To glimpses of ocean floors.
And high-speed orbital dawns?
Done. But more importantly,
Whatever nooks and crannies
Remain to stick one's nose in,
Earth is no longer the world.
