In Poems

Anna Newman

Named “little silver” but more precious than gold
Found in your jewellery as I’m nice to behold
I’m really quite durable, don’t tend to react
But you’re after a catalyst? Well I’m great at that!
I’m a transition metal so complexes I form
As cisplatin against cancer I really perform
I do all these and more, I’m quite skilled, me
Atomic number 78, Platinum, Pt.
