We did a few poems for common chemicals. Never really come in handy for me, but I'll never forget the one for DDT

A mosquito cried out in pain.
"A chemist has poisoned my brain!"
The cause of his sorrow
was paradichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane.

That's the first one I learned. The second one was "Batman Blows Robin On Yonder Gotham Bridge, Very Gooey Work".

Ooh, I remembered two more that my AP Psych teacher taught us about the brain.

If there was a hippo on campus, you'd never forget it -- the hippocampus controls memory.

Padme Amidala showed no fear -- the amygdala controls fear reactions.
