Conservation lab limericks

Here in the lab there’s no issues,
With using our tissues,
Except when you sneeze,
We ask you quite please,
Use the Kleenex and not the Sekishu!

On spines they would drape,
The most marvelous tape,

it’s self-confidence I foster,
so to not think I’m an imposter,
“Preservation is awesome!” I’ll blab!
