No Man's Land

Written by: Tanya Harrington

Is there yet any land
   left untouched by man
Like there was in the long agos
   upon the isles of the Galapagos
Where varied specis lived and thrived
   where adaptation was alive

Is there still some small space
   where man has left no trace
Perhaps in the jungles of Brazil
   out upon some ancient hill
I have a notion that in the oceans
   lie the only lands unconquered by man

For not even space it seems
   is safe from man's reach or dreams
We've ventured far beyond the Earth
   to explore and decide its worth
Yet in the end, it doesn't matter much
   we're all just little bits of cosmic dust
