The Haikus of the Periodic Table of Elements

1. Hydrogen

The balloon flew up

To the sky without much weight

How far can it go?

2. Helium

The shun brightly

But in a few thousand years

The sun will go blunt

6. Carbon

Rolling stones gather

No algae; but what about

Charcoal (It will burn)

7. Nitrogen

Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!

Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!

Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! BOOM!

8. Oxygen

It is not much known

But do you know that Oxy

Can form *gasp*acids

10. Neon

An element

That vibrantly glows orange

The new electric

12. Magnesium

'Click" says the camera

And a photograph slipped out

It smells of fireworks

13. Aluminium

The clanging upstairs

Is because of the metal

Used to wrap your food

15. Phosphorus

It so bright, so please

Close all windows; or maybe

It was phosphorus…

17. Chlorine

Ouch! That atom burnt

My skin! It's in the water!

Oh wait, it's just gas

20. Calcium

My bones felt very

Strong after I drank this milk

So get now! (Buy here!)

22. Titanium

Titans, we destroy

Titans, we stand great and tall

Titans, hard metal

24. Chromium

It's so colourful

And bright like that looooong rainbow

Except that it's hard

26. Iron

He hunts for our blood…

He's near us I can feel it…

…his fangs bit my neck…

29. Copper

It's a good thing you

Conduct; you're so important

─electrifying─

30. Zinc

It protected iron

And much more metal atoms

Will it be guarded?

36. Krypton

Superman hates it

But he has laser eyes, right?

Lasers are KRYPTON!

42. Molybdenum

Poor Molybdenum

Always confused as lead; when

Will you be the prime?

54. Xenon

Strangers are out there

Never talk to them, except

When they glow from air

74. Tungsten

The embers of our

Memories glow still as the

Light bulb for our lives

77. Iridium

Brighter than Chromium

More colourful than rainbows

Which one is your vote?

78, 79 and 47. Platinum, Gold and Silver

Does it ring a bell?

Well, yes of course! Every great

Singer has one! (Me)

80. Mercury

Tempers are flaring

Our climate slowly heats up

This world may crumble…

84 and 88. Polonium and Radium

Atoms discovered

By the love of two chemists

How radioactive!

92. Uranium

Once again: explode!

Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!

A nuclear BOOM!

102. Nobelium

And here comes the last

The noble Nobel, though fake

It's so peaceful (not!)
