So Much For Chemistry - Poem by Susan Alldred Lugton

Chemistry learned at school,
with the bunsen burner.
Then appeared a new rule,
a new type of burner.

Hormones, boy meets a girl,
chemistry at night.
Two passions soon unfurl,
they combine and ignite.

What an experiment;
orgasm, dizzy delight.
Exhausted, nothing meant,
the chemistry not right.

So from lessons at school,
there is a jolly good rule.
Look after your chemistry
or you will end up the fool.

    How beautiful! The lessons of chemistry merge into the chemistry of life through the bunsen burner of a different kind. Thanks for sharing the poem where rhymes are perfect and language is pulsating. (Report) Reply
