Biology, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

BiologyFrog, Jacob de Gheyn(c. 1600)


Look at them all in the gigantic jar.
With pair of tongs easily took one out.
This one will not be going very far.
Learning what dissecting is all about.

Scalpel, tweezers and pins all that’s needed.
To each green lifeless frog students were paired.
Blonde hair and blues eyes across was seated.
Was not at frog that I frequently stared.

Obvious she wants no part of this task.
Made the first cut, she handed me a pin.
What are you doing Friday thought to ask.
She winks and provides a big sheepish grin.

Next semester it is anatomy
Praying that she again is paired with me.
