Chemical Equilibrium

By Madison

Shall I compare thee to Le Chatelier’s Principle?
Thou art more stabilized and more shifted.
Rough disturbances do shift towards the unfixable,
And bummer, that concentrations hath too far drifted.
But thy disturbances shall not last,
For the principle has come to pass;
And for every increase of concentration on the left species,
We shall shift to the right, in the fight,
For a chemical system at equilibrium.
So long as chemists can breathe,
or eyes are protected by goggles to see,
So long lives this, and this gives equilibrium to thee.
