IN THE NEWS: Four new chemical elements are tentatively named: nihonium, moscovium, tennessine and oganesson.
In naming of the elements —
The standards that they’re using —
I’m glad they shun that pesky trend
That stadiums are choosing.
For what, pray tell, if elements
(As sponsorship appears)
Were named for say, insurance firms,
Or orange juice or beers?
