Rocket launches are impressive, don't get me wrong,
but I like getting to space with a way that's not so long.
Star Stone in a vat of battery acid, some charcoal and some salt,
a handful of ice as needed in case it gets too hot.
A dash of arcane powder, and a mathematician's tear,
add a little spark, and then make sure I'm in the clear.
Once the spell is cast and the portal opens with a buzz,
I turn the mounting aperture to the location above
where I want to go and set the focus, then I step on in,
it's time for another galactic adventure to begin.
