Little lost student

by joetwo

There in the lab

On a Wednesday Morning

I heard a loud crash

And a shout of warning


I raise my head

And I see smoke

“He’s done it again

This is a real joke!”


He is a young student

Just a fourth year

Empty of mind

And drunken with beer


We figured it quick

So he’d not hurt himself

Just to give him the save stuff

On his own little shelf


But somehow this moron

Started a fire

With years of work

Lost to the pyre


But we put it out

A lot we did save

But we then had to deal

With this undergrad knave


Our sentence was humane

Got him out of the lab

To endanger others

Which we thought was fab
