“Precarious Travel”

When Chester went down on his flight
he had not much time to relight
the gas nozzle there
that warmed up the air,
keeping him and balloon both upright.

When it came right down to it, I had to sacrifice the enjambment. It is surprising, how few words rhyme with fuzz, was and buzz.

Here is another try on Chester and his imperfect hot air balloon, though. Another try at enjambment.

When Chester went down in the flight
balloon, there was scant time to relight
the gas nozzle there
that heated the air,
keeping Chester and basket upright.
