The Grass Is Greener?

This post was written in 9 minutes.
In addition to the one listed here, I would also like to visit the Rockies, various parts of Africa, and perhaps the Orient (Thailand, maybe?)

Oh...and I guess this poem would be trochaic.

People say the grass is always greener
On the other side of that old fence;
But the pastures aren't what set me longing
To remove myself from here to thence.
It's the grand and jagged rocky peaks where
Altitude is high and air blows thinly;
Heights are always higher, other places,
Which is why I want to see McKinley.
