April 2015 PAD – Day 22: New Found Land

On 22nd April, 1500 Portuguese navigator Pedro Alvares Cabral discovered Brazil.

New Found Land

When they say old Captain Cook
found Australia
or Columbus found America
and all those famous people
found all those exotic
faraway places…

Does it ever make you wonder?
What about the people that lived there?
Why didn’t they point it out?
For silly as it may seem
Brazil really wasn’t lost at all
And Newfoundland
wasn’t missing
and it wasn’t all that new
But finding Atlantis
that would be the thing to do!
