To the Frontier

To the Frontier


They set sail upstream

With open hearts

And big dreams


Of new exploration on the shrouded frontier

A place felt with terror

By many a mind


Where knowledge lost meaning

And all was in flux

The frontier is wild

With chaos a must


Some took raisins

And some took guns

Others took coins

And butter and rum


Anyone’s guess is as good as another’s

As to which explorer made better than others

No messages come back

No bodies return

The frontier is shrouded

Its secrets to earn


To those that make it

To whom the frontier is learned

The future is open

Its riches not spurned.
