Hydrogen, Helium, Lithium, Beryllium
Is where it all begins
The periodic table of elements in chemistry
Is here for all to see.

Boron, Carbon, Nitrogen and Oxygen
Are the next four gears in this machine
All progressing with an increase in atomic number
Showing their riveting characters as they differ.

Fluorine, Neon, Sodium, Magnesium
Are the next building blocks of the entire sum
Furnace linings, Dessicants, Lights and Toothpaste

The result of putting the elements into production.

Aluminum, Silicon, Phosphorus and Sulphur
Sit next to each other in scientific rapport
Chlorine, Argon, Potassium and Calcium
Bring the first 20 elements' ship to shore.

And so there they stand, as eloquent poetry
The first 20 elements in chemistry
But wait! What about the other 78?
I have no time. We’ll save that for another date!
