Inspired by watching my friend Kris Overstreet playing Kerbal Space Program on his own gamestream. (I have the game myself but haven’t played it much mainly because I find the actually having to steer during launch incredibly daunting.)

Words and music by Joseph Abbott
Based on the computer game Kerbal Space Program

Jebediah Kerman had a gleaming in his eye
As he stood upon the shore and gazed into the Kerbin sky
He dreamed so hard of spaceflight though he knew that he might die
But he’d just reload and try it all again

So here’s to Jeb
Because failure’s not an option
But that doesn’t mean it’s not a possibility
You might make a crater
That doesn’t mean that later
You won’t soar into the starry night with glee

Jeb and Valentina, Bob and Bill and all the rest
Riding Kerbal rockets into space at your behest
They might lithobrake or they might rise up to the test
Then they’ll just reload and try it all again

This is the bio am I doing this right? Probably not.
