Polonium: choose your fate,
cancer or radiation
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
A cigarette ember’s glow
is not like Polonium’s blue glow— but both can kill.
