by Peter Davern
The Periodic Table of Poems is a unique collection of 93 short poems that explores the properties and nuances of each element in the periodic table. Davern discusses the science, history, and quirks of each element - things like why potassium reacts explosively with water, what about arsenic makes it both a deadly poison and a cure for syphilis, and how mercury inspired the term 'mad as a hatter'. For example: Li, small and light, the soft metal with mettle] Keeps much of our mobile-powerd world in good fettle; In sea and in soil, Floats on water and oil, Has helped manys the troubled mind settle.
