She senses the teacher,
With piercing arctic cold eyes,
Staring through her screen,
Waiting for an answer.
“What is the Reimer Tieman reaction?”
A cloud? Canvas? Pit?
I got my driver’s license last week?
Ae Bee Cee Dee Eee **** you!
Is raghu wearing new glasses?
Hi, my name is fevicol?
Uhm, blank blank blank sheep,
Have you any wool?
“Well, what is the answer fevicol?
Hello, students, can you hear me? Am I audible?
Check your connections fevicol? Are you there?”
Ahh, she is not reaaally there,
Sir has given her quite a scare,
Of the reaction she is not aware,
She waits for some miracle in despair!
Fevicol’s bestie to the rescue,
Texts the answer to the Q,
Sparks in her brain flew,
Relived she replies to you-
“Hello, sir, I am sorry,
I was frozen there for a while,
Phenol with chloroform gives selicyl aldehyde,
In a basic medium,
This is termed as the Reimer Teiman reaction.”
Like reciting her favorite rap,
Her breathing slows,
Receding panic attack,
And onward the class goes…
Whew! Right? This has happened countless times to me.. yet its always a rush and damn the stares+questions my teacher gives me won’t ever stop being terrifying!! 😂 and ever since the classes have shifted from online to offline.. i have been utterly helpless😬😭 tell me your story in the comments.. only funny replies expected.
