Sonnet 18 ‘Distractingly Sexy’

Sonnet 18 ‘Distractingly Sexy’

Shall I compare thee to a variably-heated alkane?

Thou art more lovely and more temperate:

Rough winds do shake the Bunsen burner flame;

And the lab equipment lease hath all too short a date.

Sometime too hot the nano-thermite shines,

And often through our blurred goggles dimmed;

And every scientific claim sometime declines,

By chance, or Nobel winner’s sexist spiels untrimm’d;

But thy lab-coated beauty shall not fade,

Nor lose possession of that hair net thou ow’st;

Nor shall the centrifugal separator brag thou wand’rest in its shade,

When in eternal tears of shame or lust thou growest:

So long as Mr Hunt does speak his strange misogyny,

So long lives this and this gives rage to me.
