Chemical dinner

Carbon bond fed me today

In the shape of jolly meat and rich starch.

Chemistry had always given me a bad smile

But today made my stomach happy.

Energy, molecules,enthalpy,

It all makes sense now.

Sweet protein life

Some proteins survive boiling,

Some enzymes live happily ever after

The long drop freezing,

Some peptides bind like a child to a mum,

Tight.

I will be a curly lysozyme today,

Hard working and efficient,

Yet sweet to taste.

Science panorama

The prism of science
Gives a rainbow of molecules
and active proteins
That together build the unimaginable.
Impossible to fully understand or draw,
This panorama fascinates me
As every inch hides a temperamental player.
