Tips to avoid Failure (in Scientific Writing or Life)

You: Woman (in Science!)
Begin with the Figure:
Perfectly ordered
As though ordained.
Shhh: Respect the narrative,
No negatives,
Be neutral.
Only briefly discuss
Limitations. Focus
Your priorities: Strategic choices.
Remember peers
Love a success story,
With a bonne chance
For reproduction.

The poem gives advice to woman scientists on how to be Accepted in society as women and in academia as scientists. They must be polished, compliant, and appropriate — just like a research paper.
