The rickety rocket created a racket
As it shot into the sky
Tickety tock went the astronaut’s clock
Counting down to the time
When lickety-split the noise kicked the bucket
As the rocket reached its rightful place
And no aliens heard its noises like “dickety-snicket”
Because there’s no sound out in space.
