The Glassware Fairy

by joetwo

Within an old lab

When all have left

There comes something strange

To engage in some theft

With a quartz crystal coat

That sparkles and oh so airy

It comes to take your stuff

The damned glassware fairy


It goes goes right after any glass

Nicking beakers, flasks and all

The fairy will take anything

Be it big or small

But it’s real goal

 It’s most dreadful greed

Is to take the day before

The stuff you really need


Stuck with missing glassware

Is a shocking pain

For ordering equipment made

Much be done again

So when you’re behind with much delay

With profs starting to bawl

There isn’t much to say except

The fairy stole them all
