Occasionally, New Zealand is simply left out. And it must quit.
A web site called worldmapswithout.nz gathers maps from all different sources that, for some or no motive, leave New Zealand outside. This can be one, and a somewhat unexpected and unexplained phenomenon which is not fair to our buddies in NZ. (Sorry, Kiwis!)
I began to empathize after seeing how frequently poor New Zealand is left out. This inspired me to compose this a little poem focused on its rightful place and to New Zealand on the map of the world.
New Zealand was seeking for its location on a map. / But it was left out of so many. What”s up with that?
All it needed was its rightful spot / Correct next to Australia with an unique private space.
But on a lot of maps, its location it couldn”t find. / New Zealand believed it’d lost it place on the earth, and its head!
But it kept on seeking for its place on the planet earth. / It understood what it was worth and that it was unique.
New Zealand appeared low and high and then see / A blank space just where it should be.
But as it believed the search was in vain, / New Zealand located itself – with its name, in its area.
I made sure this story ended happily for great ol” New Zealand.
