An ode to DynoChem ODEs

You may be familiar with Shakespeare's Sonnet 116, which begins "Let me not to marriage of true minds admit impediments".  While thinking about what stops chemists and engineers from writing fundamental models of their processes, Shakespeare's original has recently been adapted as follows:

Let me not to mod'ling alongside tests
Admit impediments. Mod'ling is not
Fit that needs hand coding in Excel sheets
Or MatLab when it alteration needs
Or systems with high barriers to use
For purpose fits the DynoChem approach
Looks on reality and is not shook
It is the start to every system stiff
Parameters unknown till data tak'n
DC's not time's fool. Phases, heat effects
And concentration in its compass come
It grows with brief hours and weeks in updates
At with new process schemes
If using other tools you feel you're hosed
Try DynoChem instead with points impos'd.

The original goes like this:
