The borders of mankind are not those we see drawn on maps
but simply the limits of our travel and any accompanying mishaps.
For many centuries that has meant the globe we have spread across
but now other planets we do seek to venture onto without loss
As mankind seeks a better way to travel on through space,
perhaps he will then remember we are all one human race,
and not alert another planet to the wars that still occurr,
for such a weakness may seem to them to make us look absurd.
