Murphy’s Rocket Ship
by Clancy O’Lafferty
Murphy built him a rocket ship
And made the whole thing out of wood.
He claimed he intended to fly to the sun
And come back again safe if he could.
But Hennesy said, “Won’t the damn thing burn?”
“Aye, Hennesey for sure and you’re right!
But the fact is that you have a lot more to learn
Cuz I plans to fly up there at night!”
