Helium

I just discovered the poetic table of elements. You can write a poem about the element of your choice. I just wrote one about Helium.

Helium drift me
from your weightlessness
and set me squeaky free
send me birthday party poem.

Helium
Quiet, rare, and thoughtful.
Always the heavier sister to Hydrogen
Who everybody used to love
because she was pretty much everywhere.
Until she became too volatile.
Oh the humanity.
And now
Nobody will even think of you in a big way.
You'll never be as popular.
But you make children laugh with
your silvery balloons, and funny voices.
Really, we realize we love you more.

thanks. I'm not sure anybody gets the "oh the humanity" line.

Heathers reference? It makes sense with the competition for popularity theme.
