NOTE: In the next decade, 2020–2030, the word is not “plastics.” It is “graphene.” There are some scientists who are having a great deal of fun and competition with this amazing material.

The ‘poem’ above was created from words taken from a report about graphene, written by David H. Freedman and published over a year ago in Quanta magazine: “With a Simple Twist, a ‘Magic’ Material Is Now the Big Thing in Physics: The stunning emergence of a new type of superconductivity with the mere twist of a carbon sheet has left physicists giddy, and its discoverer nearly overwhelmed.” (April 29, 2019).

I read on the internet from Pocket and extracted some of the words beginning with the letter T in order to craft the poem — to honor graphene. Here are some of the words from the article that didn’t make the cut:

Thinking
Theories
Twice
Tenth
Turning
Transmission
Today’s

And Thanks to Pablo Jarillo Herrero, Ph.D., the Cecil and Ida Green Professor of Physics at MIT.
