Christmas in Los Angeles,
Has me sweating like a yeti.
Not like they do in Old Tibet,
But more like in the Serengeti.
I’ve got the sweats and can’t stop drinking,
There’s sugar exuding from all my pores.
How I wish I had never eaten that
Five pound bag of gummy dinosaurs!
Christmas brings us lots of fun,
Even to scientists, just like me.
Why, I am so into the holidays,
I even decorated my Chemistree!
Being a scientist is what I adore,
Rearranging atoms without fear!
So how did my boss ever decide,
That I’m an electrical engineer?
Thanksgiving poems are predictable,
Turkey, stuffing and gravy driblets.
Yet I find it quite despicable,
No one sings the praise of giblets.
Lost my rhythm,
Lost my rhyme,
I’ve also lost,
All sense of time!
