Ode to Coffee

Open Adobe Photoshop
Copy, paste, cut, crop.
Build the figure, make it pop.
Forgot to save? Better not!

I'm putting down the pipette,
So I wait, the timer’s set.
I check my notes and forgot a step.
Now immediate regret.

No time to waste, here we go.
But my head is moving mighty slow.
Way too much science info.
Energy is running low.

But no, not yet, I can't give up!
Let me fill my coffee cup.
With cream or sugar, or dark and strong,
When it comes to coffee you can't go wrong.
