A Poem For The Poor Country That Seems To Always Be Left Out On The Map

Sometimes, New Zealand is just left out. And it has to stop.

A website called worldmapswithout.nz collects maps from all different sources that, for some or no reason, leave New Zealand out. This is a rather strange and unexplained phenomenon, and one that is unfair to our friends in NZ. (Sorry, Kiwis!)

After seeing how often poor New Zealand is left out, I started to empathize. This inspired me to write this a little poem dedicated to New Zealand and to its rightful spot on the map of the world.

New Zealand was searching for its place on a map. / But it was left out of so many. What”s up with that?

New Zealand was searching for its place on a map. / But it was left out of so many. What

All it wanted was its rightful place / Right next to Australia with its own private space.

All it wanted was its rightful place / Right next to Australia with its own private space.

But on so many maps, its place it couldn”t find. / New Zealand thought it had lost it spot on the globe, and its mind!

But on so many maps, its place it couldn

But it kept on searching for its spot on the earth. / It knew that it was special and what it was worth.

But it kept on searching for its spot on the earth. / It knew that it was special and what it was worth.

New Zealand looked high and low only to see / A blank space exactly where it should be.

New Zealand looked high and low only to see / A blank space exactly where it should be.

But just as it thought the search was in vain, / New Zealand found itself – in its place, with its name.

But just as it thought the search was in vain, / New Zealand found itself - in its place, with its name.

I made sure that this story ended happily for good ol” New Zealand.
