Another SpaceX Failure Avatar In The Cards?

SpaceX shot a Dragon with a Falcon into the air
It landed and I know where
Onto a platform floating of the Florida coast
After two failures time for SpaceX to boast
But a Dragon is not content to be pushed into space by mere rockets
And on this platform it cannot slide into a safe deep pocket
For a brief moment however slight
It looked like the Dragon had landed successfully from its flight
But then the Dragon decided on a Tower of Pisa ape
All thoughts of standing straight and tall quickly escaped
Tipping over to fall on its side and another Dragon to scratch
When it comes to landing having pilots is a spacecraft hard to match
Given the movie’s success with humans on their necks
Change the name to Avatar and next time it will not be wrecked
