Potassium is my name ,
Im dangerous in open air,
So they hide me away in shame,
You can cut me,
But i am toxic,
And very reactive,
And thats whats brought me to fame,
So if you remember one thing,
Just one thing,
Remember i burn with a lilac flame.

Original Poem #4 : Acrostic
Oxidation level of plus or minus
Thermal expansion and thermal conductivity? Lets not go there.
Atomic numer of 19, you know it
Shear modulus? Whats that? 1.3 GPa
Speed of sound? 2000 m/s (at 20 *C) with a thin rod of course
Ionizaton energies; i have more than 3 levels
Unsure at all?
Maybe you need more potassium
Original Poem #5 ; Limerick
“Ace” & “Ue”
Stars & planets show a faint element trace,
Their pigments dance in outer space.
Potassium bleeds as a lilac hue ;
Where copper shows and it turns to blue,
That is why the universe is out of its place.
Original Poem #6 ; Couplet
Jim McMahon ( Potassium )
I’m an alkali metal with a plan
Try to keep up with me, if you can
Lose an electron is what we’re tryin’ to do
Because then our shells will be just like new
Found in the S block, I’m very reactive
Mix me with water, be ready to be impacted
That’s why i got you all here on the double
To catch me doin the element shuffle
Original Poem #7 ; Free Verse
“K” & “O”
Oxygen and I , what am i to say
Because we went on a date and all he said was “K”
Not to complain and not to squander
But what does “K” mean, its left me to wonder
Well “K” he exclaimed is what he is to say
For thats what you are on the table, oh yay
As though he is “O”, and that’s something left for another day
