THIS, TOO, IS
CHEMISTRY'S DOINGS
THE PITIFUL story of Hepsibah Ann
I'll tell you as faithfully as I can.
Hepsibah lived all the days of her life
With normal amounts of joy and strife.
She'd cut her teeth and learned to walk
And amazingly early she learned to talk.
She went to school and, so I'm told,
She always was just as good as gold,
She played in all the Christmas plays-
And her report card never had much but "A's'
The awkward age she skipped right over
And life was still a bed of clover.
In time she went away to college;
With grace and ease she soaked up knowledge.
And Heppy was hppy as Heppy could be
'Til she made the acquaintance of CHEMISTRY!
The facts of life she thought she knew,
But no one prepared her for Waterloo.
At first, she thought she'd love the stuff.
She thought she had I. Q. enough.
But soon the acids, salts and bases
Left their sad, confusing traces
On wrinkled blow and haggard face
And bidden nails all over the place.
Molecules and electrolytes
Kept her in her room at nights.
She said to calls for recreation,
"Not 'til I solve this damned equation."
She never was able to have any fun:
Reactions and products were never done.
The ways of bismuth, lead and zinc
Left her much too tired to think.
ONCE, she even grew hysterical
With all the compounds amphoterical.
She plugged and pleaded and plodded and plied
And struggled and strived and toiled and tried.
She grew gloomy and groggy and gray and grim
She grew weepy and watery, doleful and dim.
And horror of Horrors! She lost such. weight
She multiplied this steady rate
By the number of weeks to the end of the term.
The result was such as made her squirm.
The thought was truly enough to appall;
When the final came-she'd weigh nothing at all
She sat down quick to curb her fate
To work it out e'er it was too late..
But alas, alas! for Hepsibah Ann,
Who failed her tests again and again.
She couldn't stop trying; she had to get through
The last few weeks and start life anew.
So the days they came and the days they went,
But poor little Hepsibah's life was spent.

MORAL:
When next term's work you try to plan
Remember the fate of Hepsibah Ann.
Those with a chemical turn of mind,
By the way, are very hard to find!.
Those who can are welcome to it.
The rest of us shouldn't try to do it!
