The Senile Chemistry Professor

The Senile Chemistry Professor

By Elton Camp

On retirement old Doc did belong
But he stayed at the job too long

Although his students it did amuse
When ionic and covalent he’d confuse

Carbon in organics is never found
To them had a very strange sound

The dean didn’t know what to say
But the problem resolved one day

Doc took a drink and was no more
What he thought H20 was H2SO4

    Very humorously pen picture of the doc, Elton

    Thank you. Fortunately, this isn't based on a real case. Elton
