Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

He would have discovered magnesium sulphate
But he lost his ticket and he missed his train
And the Nobel Prize went down the drain

Me thinks your history book must be wrong
The stuff was found way, way long
Before the Nobel Prize came to be
By the Scott, Joseph Black who lived by the sea.

Cheers!

Its such a strain

an award will have to wait
best to leave it to fate

But you do remind me, I need to fertilize my roses.
