Harrison found orange soil!

Alas, the world missed

What it should have witnessed,

How Harrison found orange soil

In the otherwise white, barren rock

Beyond imagination, but not his fingertips.

Harrison then turned his camera

To show the world his orange soil.

But how come, the world thought,

Is orange soil ought

To be seen as so special a sight?

So Harrison took his orange soil,

And brought it back

From the white, arid, cold, fruitless rocks.

And none have ever returned to that place,

And none ever again saw anything quite like

Harrison’s orange soil.
