} You know Neon and Cobalt and Carbon and Fluorine,
} Iodine, Bromine, and Sulphur and Argon.
} But do you recall the most famous element of all?
} Radium the green-tinged element.
} Had a sickly greenish tinge.
} And if you ever saw it, you would even say,
} "I need to check into a hospital right away as I've clearly been
} exposed to unacceptable levels of radiation. IT GLOWS!".
} All of the other elements
} used to transmute and change their names.
} They never let poor radium
} join in any high-school chemistry experiments.
} Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say:
} Radium, with your glow so bright,
} won't you guide my sleigh tonight?
} Then all the elements loved him,
} and they shouted out with glee:
} Radium, the green-tinged element,
} you'll go down in history!
} You owe the Oracle some lead-lined gloves and the words to "I'm
} dreaming of a white Christmas, but preferably not one caused by a
} nuclear winter."
