Having Crossed Borders

Now where do I begin
For the past is a great place to start
When clannish is what we became
Whilst adventure was growing in our hearts

Can you honestly imagine where we'd be
Inclosed in our internal peripheral
When one day it came to be
Someone peered over the wall

This step in our ancestral past
Gave way for the way we are now
Allowing interaction, two minds are better than one
Scratching our heads, and finding out how

The only way that this could happen
As we look around our daily lives
Is for us, having crossed borders
Letting imagination in us strive

It's 2012 and we take for granted
What our ancestors created from thought
We use and buy them without care
In reality, we're clannish, and bought

So close your eyes and imagine, something
Be it T.V. the Radio or the car
Lets applaud our Geographical borders, having crossed
We've only started, we have still to go far
