Misadventures in the chemistry lab

Oh! The horrid chemical smell!
Handle the apparatus carefully! Our chemistry teacher yells
Advice unheard, as nearby, a conical flask shatters
Uh-oh! I hear the culprit- a student mutter
Pay up! I hear the lab assistant order
The student’s lucky that he didn’t break a burette or a pipette,
Those cost more and us clumsies haven’t broken those…..yet.
The chuckle of students can be heard over the bubbling of effervescent chemicals and Bunsen burners,
Mocking the student’s clumsiness!
I spilt acid on my finger once,
Dunno how I escaped injury…..though I think they heard my yowl in France!
Even the slight sound o’ a test tube cracking,
Elicites a great deal o’ cackling…an’ a whole lotta warnings!
Welcome to our chemistry lab with misadventures galore,
Cleaning up after these misadventures though, is quite a chore!

Based on true events that occur at my school. We,twelfth graders can be quite clumsy. Although, unlike my friends, I’ve a record of zero broken apparatus (sorry for the brag B-D) an’ I’m gonna be careful so it stays that way. Thanks for reading my silly poem 🙂

Gone too soon…

He made every Trekkie’s day with his adorableness an’ his accent,
An’ bravely slew vampires with David Tennant.
He was a talented actor and oh, so young!
When we heard about his death, how it must’ve stung.
RIP, Anton Yelchin.

To mums everywhere

To mums everywhere,
Thanks for all the love an’ care.
Thanks for cuddling us as a baby,
For runnin after us when we were naughty!
For all the scoldings when we were bad,
And the hugs when we were sad.
Thanks for the troubles ya took,
So we wouldn’t turn out to be  unemployed kooks!
