The Periodic table of poetry has a poem for each element – I like Krypton.

symbol: Kr
atomic number: 36
atomic weight: 83.80

come here you
kal el super superman
let me feel your hardness
and i
i will find uses for you
undreamed of in chemistry

you came here
you made of krypton
colourless unreactive nontoxic
and i
i have no further use for you
mr kent, clark

Oh, Krypton’s a wonderful element
From it we can build a monument,
To keep Superman away, for forever and a day,
So Batman can rule, and not Clark Kent.
Link. Thanks Arwen!
