When Fi Went To The Moon - Poem by Alison Drew

When Fi looked up to the sky one day
With all her might she hoped and prayed
That one day oh so very soon
She would be able to visit the moon

She searched on the internet for methods abound
For a project to help get her off the ground
Many hours were spent looking on google
For something that wouldn’t cost much as Fi is quite frugal

For NASA can afford to splash out and buy lots of stuff
When all Fi had was some sellotape and dog fluff
Then the answer popped up but it gave her quite a start
When the best method to get there was having a huge fart

Now normally it wasn’t Fi’s style to let out a trump
So she was a bit confused and indeed a bit stumped
Till she remembered something she’d heard and seen
That it would require a huge quantity of baked beans

So she started to munch and hoped for the best
And made sure her bottom got lots of rest
Before taking off with stretched out hands
Leaving behind firm earthly land

It wasn’t as painful as she had thought
Plenty of milk of magnesia had been sought
For any after effects that might not have been good
Especially after landing on the moon with a thud

But land she did with flag in hand
Which was soon stuck in moony type sand
After a good look around at the moon and the stars
Suddenly she was homesick from being so afar

A couple of cans later, Fi set off again
Narrowly missing Saturn and meteorites rain
She returned to this earth with as much dignity as she could muster
With quite a sore bottom, and in quite a fluster

But it was all worth it just to know
That anything could be done with baked beans in tow
So the next time you look up at the moon you may see
A tail of smoke that may be our Fi
