Polonium: choose your fate,
      cancer or radiation

Janet Kuypers
11/24/21 (Twitter-length Periodic Table poem
for the element #84 Polonium (Po)
on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr

Polonium’s really radioactive
(a word Maric Curie created) and is in cigarettes.
Curie discovered Polonium,
but its radiation can’t cure you
of cancer from smoking, and radioactivity killed
Marie Curie.
A cigarette ember’s glow
is not like Polonium’s blue glow— but both can kill.
