The Space Rocket With No BOOM ! In It’s ZOOM !

Astro the Astronaut had the kind of problem that only an astronaut ought …

Whenever he went to turn on the remote,

Nothing much happened … not single note.

When other rockets went zooming away,

Astro Sputnik’s was static grounded on the base for the day …

Although he filled the engine with fuel,

The space rocket still remained quite cool !

It didn’t go BOOM ! when he switched on the ignition,

No wonder Astro Sputnik was worried about his mission !

Astro Sputnik really didn’t know what to do …

So he looked in the manual, perhaps for a clue.

He tried a fire – with logs and a match,

But when it rained,, there was a damp catch !

He even attached his rocket to a hot air balloon,

But it was too heavy to reach the Moon.

He hit the rocket with a tennis raquet – game set and match with a Venus score …

But the rocket only launched three inches off the floor.

Then he came up with a novel idea,

Top get the rocket to shift into first gear …

A trampoline … perhaps would help overcome this curse,

With the biggest springs in the universe.

It took Astro Sputnik a whole hour, to ensure that the springs were truly rocket – powered …

Then he launched off without further ado …

You wouldn’t believe how the rocket flew !

In fact, Astro Sputnik was such a good shot,

That he passed every star in the universe, without hitting any of the lot !

Then, he zoomed through the hole in the ozone,

Before turning around Mars and returning back home.
