Thomas Dolby Is A Cautionary Tale

Strontium carbonate (lithium, too)
Provides the first color in Red, White and Blue.
Which of the elements whites up the night?
If you guessed Magnesium, Madame, you’re right!
Cu3As2O3Cu
Combined with (C2H3O2)2: Blue.
Shove ’em in rockets, add flame, and run! Why?
You’ve made fireworks! Have a great 4th of July!
