Poem: Space Rocket

Come onboard
Hop on
Lengthwise 
Spread yourself out
Hold on tight with your fingers
You're going on a ride

Engine roars  
Wheels turn left
Gaining speed straightaway 
Wings take flight
Grip on tight with your shoes

Still on the outside
Should be on the inside
People look out
Know something is wrong
Slows down
Lands smoothly

Man yells 
Interrupted mission
Crew is confused
Pilot is pissed
Want answers to your negligence
You're not off to a great start

Women surround you
Tell you how much you failed
Defend yourself
Make it known you matter
Open your mouth
Say a few words
