A Chapter by Dave Brown



Using my hobby chemistry set

I recorded some interesting datum

After a bit of trial and error

I managed to split a small atom


It was just a little one

An inside test tube, type kaboom

However, I do feel fortunate

I didn’t end up in a tomb


I’d always wanted

To outdo the guy next door

He liked to beat me at everything

Time to even the score


Hooking it up to the ignition

Of his sweet ride

An eliminate competition reaction

That guy was gunna get fried


But something went wrong, no kaboom

Covertly, I wiggled the wires again

Of course, they worked fine this time

And I ended up in Bahrain


I don’t play with that set anymore

I bake chocolate cake instead

Find yummy taste of chocolate icing

Much better than ending up dead

I can always count on your poetry making me laugh, smile in agreement, and think more wisely, and again laugh at the truth you write. Thank you, Dave, you're an amazing writer and satirist.

I'm not so sure I am but I appreciate your comment
The taste of yummy chocolate would be much better than winding up dead 🤣

Life lesson over doing competition can be deadly if we are not careful. All things in moderation
