#592 – Chemistry Set

Chemistry Set
Um… this isn’t going as planned. Of course, I didn’t really have a plan to begin with.

Chemistry Set

For Christmas, someone gave to me
a set to teach me Chemistry
with tubes to measure, stirring sticks,
and lots of chemicals to mix.
Some mixtures glowed, and some grew hot,
and others didn’t do a lot,
and so I found it much more fun
to mix up each and every one.
A pinch of that, a splash of this
makes chemicals that foam and hiss.
A drop of this, a drip of that,
they made a noise like, “sploot split splat!”
Perhaps no knowledge I had gained,
but truly I was entertained
until the mix destroyed my room
with one tremendous, noisy BOOM!
