Comments about Mel Carter
A Cautionary Tale for High School Chemisty Classes
It doesn't take tremendous skill
Discovering Chemicals can kill.
Within containers there's no mys'try
Eat or drink me and you're Hist'ry.
But Don would sneer, It's very boring
And was forever quite ignoring
Warning labels - front or back
(Bright and orange, text bold black)
On boxes, bottles, jars and tins
Wherein he could indulge his sins.
Sampling the forbidden fruit
He really didn't give a hoot
A damn, a monkey's or a fig
And frequently would take a swig,
