And so I give you Stopping by the Lab on a Summer Evening:
His lab it is, the boss I know.He vacations in the summer though;He will not see me stopping hereTo finish papers before deadlines go.My other friends must think it queerTo work without a supervisor nearBetween the benches and piles of platesThe hottest evening of the year.I give my newest samples a shakeThinking there is some mistake.The only other sound’s the humOf incubators and plates that shake.I dream of rest that’s long and deepBut I have promises to keep,And hours to work before I sleep,And words to write before I sleep.
I'm actually quite enjoying this new game, so I'd be open to other requests for songs or poems, preferably with direction on areas of science you'd like to include. I'm tempted to start trying some current events ones. The general ones might get a bit repetitive after a while. :S
