Major Tim Peake
Will be breaking a record this week,
he's the first male Briton ,
to grace space.
He blasted off at 11:03
no doubt dreaming of a mug
of proper brewed tea.
He'll be joining fellow astronauts
on the rocket SOYUZ,
if he doesn't make it back
it will be a field day for the lawyers.
We applaud the giants steps
he's taking to INFINITY and beyond,
we hope the mission's genuine
and we're not sat here being conned.
You're a brave man Tim,
zooming in a rust-bucket that's, let's face it, antique,
we wish you LUCK and safe return,
upon re-entry don't let those nostril hairs burn.
