Curium, a wondrous thing
It's symbol, Cm
, can make my heart sing
Number ninety-six, a sight to behold
Its color unknown, but certainly bold
It melts at sixteen thirteen K
(or so I have been told)
It weighs two four seven AMU
s. (Even more than gold
It is a rare earth metal, and an actinide
It is not found in nature for in labs is where it's at!
When the temp is two nine three
You may find that its density
Is one three point one five five g
Divided by cm to three
No one knows quite when it boils
But its name comes from the toils
of the Curies
. They helped find
that warped their minds!
Then they breathed fire and were not kind
And laser beams
from their eyes shined!
would be no more
But Godzilla gave a mighty roar!
He killed the giant scientists
And stopped the swinging of their fists
No one in Tokyo could insist
does not exist
is just one point three
Curium, O curium
You have a friend in me!
