The rocket scientist looked in dismay as the rocket lay in a smolderin' heap!
'Twas fired t'ward Mars but was not to be - 'twas enow' to make a man weep!
As he skulked back to his office to figger out what went wrong,
A thought rattled thro' his skull settin' off a clangin' gong!
"The consarned thing is like some guv'mint workers I know!" he uttered!
"They won't work and you can't fire 'em!" under his breath he muttered!
