Retrodictions, canto 1, quatrain 4

A silvery sliver fuels mighty engines;
the tiniest spark of stuff goes smash;
alchemic achievement with a vengeance;
but who will dare take out the trash?

Commentary by Brother Quark:
As ever, alchemists promise wealth and power but deliver dross.

Commentary by N. Hellerstein:
This is about nuclear energy. Alchemy indeed.
