The Lyrics

As a kid growing up in the '70s, rocketry was super cool along with making models. Hobby shops were everywhere as well as Toys 'R Us. For the Estes rockets you needed rocket engines, the biggest of which were the totally awesome D12 0 booster engines which cost a lot back then and you had to get permission or be a certain age to buy.
D12 0,
So mighty,
Powerful and not so cheap
For a rocket launch,
You usually needed one or two,
On Estes power the rocket flew!

How it zoomed!

D12 0,
Security,
Behind the counter visibly,
18 to buy sucked,
Or you had to get approved,
Hobby shop owners kept an eye on you!

Models and rockets still here,
But are far less used...
Violent video games the kids now choose
Whatever happened to kids building things (apart from Legos) and outdoor hobby fun?

For some reason, no matter how carefully I pack my rockets, the chutes seldom deploy correctly or at all! 555 ft!
