.5. Trip To The Moon - Poem by David Threadgold

Ten down to one
Press ignition then fire
Another space mission
Must now become flyer

Gantry clamps fall
Rocket boosters give lift
Straight as a die
Neither sideways must shift

Clearing the launch pad
The roar is intense
To lift such a structure
With size so immense

Through cloudless blue sky’s
Passing stars in the black
Once on the out trip
And once coming back

Thousands of tons
On a trip to the moon
To orbit three times
Then back home real soon
