|Old scientists don't die they sublimate|
Just some background: Richard (for it is he) consumes a lot of vegetable matter...... Paaaarrp!
There was an old geneticist called Dickie,
who's diet was notoriously pernickety,
The beetroot consumed resulted in a gaseous boom
And Dickie was propelled backwards into eternity.
Old Dickie spent time in the FISH room,
Consuming copious amounts of legume,
The fermenting mass was ever so crass
Releasing a nauseous fart plume
A diet of pulse is not to recommend,
As a legion of co-workers can contend,
The resulting concoction results in eruption
And poor Dickie's colon it does distend.
So if in confined space with Dickie,
Maintaining composure can be tricky,
Don't linger too long in the resulting pong
Or eventually you'll feel rather sickly.
So it's time to farewell our friend,
Who's flatus proclivities do offend,
No longer a song or the occasional pong
Escaping from Dickie's front and rear end
Now you have got to admit that is a dreadful piece of doggerel.
