I am in the right place, it's easy to see
'cause the monitor's on, and everyone's waiting
For the lecture to start, all poised and expectant
I look at my textbook, my courage not fading.
"Positron Emission and Nuclear Fusion
Tellurium, compounds, and X-rays transmut'n
Gamma Rays, Faraday, Mendelev and Dalton,
Potassium ions and isomerization."
Yikes, oh my gosh, will I be able to learn this?
It's highly unlikely, I'm not sure I can,
It all seems so foreign like some other world
Are cyclobutane and ergot important? and when?
With the book and lecture and internet too,
Extra credit for poetry (catharsis to boot)
I'm hoping it's possible to do what I need
to earn those three units, and learn Chem for me.
