Crossing Flat Earths Again

More googling through my old Usenet posts threw up this old poem...

Crossing Flat Earths Again

Flat earths surround us,
the traps that hide
the roads to our dreams.
"Here be Tygers"
and we pause,
afraid.
But the Tyger is burning
and by its bright
we see the paths
and walk.
"Terra Incognito"
the blank on the map,
but -
if no one's drawn here
we are free to make
our mark.

So explore the flat earth
by Tyger light
and draw me new maps
of heavens.
