Chemistry Poem For Grade XI

By Arjun Dahal

Heisenberg clearly stated that we can't, Determine the exact position and momentum of electron. Now-a-days, I too have the same problem. I find something, yet something is missing there.   You act like as both of oxidizing and reacting agent, As my heart has not been able to find a catalyst, Or any suitable reagent. Dear, when I applied Le-chatlier’s principle In the chemistry of my love The stress get shifted towards my brain And it flow like a bug.   You are like as an electron, always remaining in a fixed orbit And I’m like a proton, I can’t even think coming out of nucleus for a bit. Rutherford was so close to set us close together, But villian Bohr made it impossible, And increased our distance more further.   You are completely based on de-Broglie’s concept Sometime you act as particle and, sometimes as a wave. By my brain in ready to accept you, By forming tetrahedral structure like cave. When I see you, my lost quantum numbers, Head towards the destination, But the core of my heart, after crushed goes to calcination. When my acidic brain react with your basic heart, Without any comment, Sweet dreams of salt starts to build up, but the water molecule thus formed, sweeps it away within a moment.   My ionization potential is high, Your electron affinity is high, But when the shielding effect, overcomes my Ionization energy. Then my heart starts to cry. When your one mole of feelings, Comes nearer to me to inspire My heart realizes that as the laws of stoichoimetry, They had already expired. I’m unable to find out the bonding between you and me Whether is electrovalent or covalent or coordinate covalent. Hope, the hydrogen bond between you and me lasts forever, And the electronegativity between you and me, Won’t create a bother. Hope, in future you won’t show, any type of resonating structure And the dipole moment between us two will last forever. Dear, I’m proton, I have nothing to do with reactions You’re electron, so please be stable Without taking any actions.   I want our love to be completely inert for others, And will derive the general method of love, Between us, that will work forever for all.
