Don’t go noble fellow. Stay.

Don’t fill the mylar and fly away.

We need your stability. We need your inert charm.

You’re our rock to reduce reaction volatility.

Fusion on earth is too hot to bare.

Two joined protons are far too rare.

Helium, how noble, how unyielding, how brave.

So few others make the electrons behave.

Don’t go noble fellow. Stay.

Don’t fill the mylar and fly away.

A stomach on foot travels slow

Sliding on slime, the gastropods flow

In the current, bivalves sit and wait

Food comes to them, no need for bait

A brain on foot hurries through the water

Cephalopod hunts end in slaughter

Phylum mollusca are a curious bunch

They can’t agree how to get their lunch
