When you think of science
What comes to mind
Science is very intriguing to the mind
Your senses trigger the cell membranes

As you begin to think
Of words in science
Suddenly the mind freezes
Like a blocked cage

Then and there
All the scientific words
Start flowing through the brain
Words like photosynthesis,
Astrophysics, and phosphorus . . . .
