It's been a blast

Agedly sagedly
David F Attenborough
said we were doomed with a 
very sad face.

We dragged our knuckles round
wrapped him in plastic and
launched him to space.

Double dactyl rules!
Double dactylic rhythm
8 lines; syllable count 6664 6664
Line 1 has two slightly nonsensical rhyming words
Line 2 is a name
Line 6 consists of a single word
Lines 4 and 8 rhyme
It’s weird but it works! :-)
