‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the lab,
Not a stir bar was stirring, the beakers were drab.
The paper was hung, but quick to dry,
It doesn’t take long, our temperatures are high.

Visions of test paper danced in our dreams,
Forming test strips, and books, and even reams.
Howard was sleeping, weary to the bone,
Exhausted from using his typewriter and phone.

2014 came in with a clatter,
We knew it’d be busy, but this was no matter.
When what to our wondering eyes did appear,
But a new general manager, we’re so glad he’s here.

The year has been hectic, our brains are fried,
New part numbers, new products, our growth has been wide.
It’s all thanks to our customers far and near,
Without your loyalty, we wouldn’t be here.

More rapid than development, your requests they came,
And you called and you emailed and you ordered by name:
Now Peroxide! Now Peracetic!
Now, Chlorine and QAC!
On pH! On Glucose!
On, Humidity and PTC!

And then, in a twinkling, the year came to an end,
We’ll take a few days to relax on the mend.
We can’t thank you enough, that is clear,
Happy Holidays to all, and cheers to the New Year!
