'Twas the night before Winter Break, when all thro' Science
Not a beaker was stirring, it’s quiet in residence;
Exams are finished and students head home,
Knowing all about atoms, electrons and the genome.
Our research was in the newspaper, radio and on Twitter;
Stories about carp, snakes and sweeteners in the Grand River,
They were picked up by the National Post, New York Times and BBC;
If you missed them visit news to take a look and see.
Our newest Aviation professor came to visit,
Telling us to explore and push our limits;
Chris Hadfield’s lecture aimed to inspire,
At the end, he added a Warrior’s jersey to his attire.
From all of us here at the University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Science -
Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good night.
