My friend and I launched a model rocket recently, and therefore I wrote this poem.  My friend has the recorded video of the launch, so I’ll try to see if I can get it from him.  Until then, this poem alone will have to do.

Rocket Launch

by Simeon Koh

Five,
The anticipation rises
Four,
No turning back now
Three,
I hope this works!
Two,
What if it doesn’t?
One!
The moment of truth!!!

Why didn’t it go?
You’re supposed to say, “Blast off!”
Oh.  Blast off!
Pshoooooo~~~~~~ng!
And up up up it goes
