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.

Liquid life, power restored!
Fueled by caffeine and sugar galore,
Energized with proper vigor,
Roll up my sleeves, to the bench once more!

Grad school is hard, research is tough.
It's easy to feel like I can't work enough,
Or that everyone else will see through my bluff,
But I have to remember, I've got the right stuff!

Thank you coffee for helping me see,
That the land of doubt is no place to be,
That I am smart and I believe,
There's a brilliant scientist in me!

Coffee: liquid life.
