Surrounded

Chemistry is around me,

my coffe tastes so bitter,

thank you little tannins.

Biology is in my belly,

my bread has many bubbles,

thank you budding yeast.

Self protection

In this day of treasure hunts and inquisitive looks,
I move slowly asking the people of the lab.
Envy and demands appeared together
But my persona is well defined
And the borders guarded.
Short but sneaky, the human fence
Cannot be fooled.
