And lithium (Li2CO3) to balance your moods
Use calcium chloride (CaCl2) to keep things dry
And rubidium (RbNO3) for purple on the 4th of July.
Use epsom salts (MgSO47H20) to soak your feet
And if you're sore, bath salts (MgSO4) are sweet!
Rock salt (NaCl) helps with driveways and ice creams
Sodium nitrate (NaNO3) grows roses like dreams.
Saltpeter (KNO3) is needed to keep guns equipped
Preserving salamis and keeping pants zipped!
So whatever the problem, whatever the fault
It's easy to fix it--add a big dash of salt!
I love this...especially the rhyme!
My favorite salt? The ice cream variety!!
Poetry and science with a twist of salt.....wonderful.

You salty dog

Salts central to me
As is chemistry
But laughter's the thing
Makes you a shaker of me
It can't better be!
So clever, Mouse. I love this.
I can hear the elements app song as I read your poetry, wonderfully enlightening.
you make me hungry.
thanks for the treat.
Woowww!! I wish my chemistry teachers had taught me about all those compounds in poetic form! I would've definitely learnt 'em faster!
AWESOME poem, this!! Much enjoyed, Lola!!
This is so creative and cute, and I love the rhyme. You even slipped in a chemistry lesson. Great magpie!!!
