Human Cannon!

I’m building a human cannon!
From parts found laying around this place
Bits of wood, metal, a wheelbarrow, violin, and a roller skate
I use wires from a microwave and a cat whisker
Lots of glue and hope hold it all in place

I found a sturdy helmet and painted it bright yellow!
I am ready to launch myself into space
Past the tips of evergreen trees and singing birds
Higher than purple mountains capped with snow
Up and up until I can feel stardust on my face

But how will I get back down?!
I fall through fluffy, gray clouds like a stone
I race hot, white lightening to the ground
I plummet closer and closer
I’m not sure how I will slow down
