2005 / 06 / 24 - Mom, Dad, I Bought Scientific Books - Poem by A Poem A Day

My parents were convinced I wasn't serious
About my majoring choice in universtity
Because they'd never seen me go curious
About anything correlated with pharmacy.

But I decided to prove them utterly incorrect,
Show them that deceitful are many looks,
And rectify their discrediting dialect
So I went to some exposition of books.

I bought books about immunology, hematology,
Genetics (the topic I like the most) ,
Endocrinology, metabolism and dermatology
Without asking about prices and cost.

Then I came home handing them like a trophee
'Mom, Dad, I bought scientific books' I said
My father almost spit his black coffee
And my mother jumped off from her bed.

Standing like the champion of a crucial fight
I was watching their eyes glow with delight.

Five minutes is all the time that it took
To let the idea jumble in their head and cook.

But suspicious as they are, they wanted a proof
So I exhibited the six new books with pride,
My overjoyed mother would've danced on the roof
And my father, from happiness, nearly died.
