Louis and Solomon Breyer: I Dreamt a Cardboard Rocket Poem

I dreamt a cardboard rocket ...

a poem by Louis and Solomon Breyer

I dreamt a cardboard rocket
And flew it into space
I took my little brother
Who's a rocket-flying ace.

We picnicked with The Clangers
And played football on a star
We zapped some baddie aliens
To save the world from war.

We steered our capsule back to earth
It splashed down in the sea
A Navy frigate picked us up
And took us home for tea
