Draw a wrench
Then a hard hat
And finally a lab coat
Put that piece of paper on a table
Then go to your bookshelf
Bring Kreyszig’s “Advanced Engineering Mathematics”
And Bird’s “Transport Phenomena”
But one at once, cause they’re quite heavy
Place them next to that piece of paper
You’re almost done! Just add your health&safety manual cause no one likes things blowing up
Leave everything there to melt like in one of Salvador Dali’s paintings.
Come back in a couple of hours.
Place the resulting viscous mixture in a storage tank
Then spill it out using a positive displacement pump.
Voila! You’ve ended up with a chemical engineer
Not as talkative as a politician, but better at dealing with world’s existing problems
And you’ve only had to defy the laws of thermodynamics
