Ode: Whispering tears

In my growing blissful life
Poetry got her justice,
Biochemistry speaks in metabolism
This two girls attracts angels to earth
But decisions in a dilemma are irrational
The Devil cries in whispers.

PVC I gaze;
Searching for Einstein’s masterpiece
Anything: cowrie or white chalk
Day and night she stares at me
While I bang and yell for
Biochemistry to open the door.

Expression Eruption: Biochemistry II

Thank thou biochemistry
Thy bless thee with gift of poetry
And thee know why tall is to trees
And long to colon of that fed on grass.

To thee thou said, nothing like Abiko
Transcribe nothing; believe everything
In hindrances, there is a blockage
In pathway for impossibility to exist.

Exquisitely explaining existence
Every life has a molecular story
Translated by replication along dogma
To live, act, and die.

Biochemistry is Jack the all trader
Brain of the genus God
That makes success in
The most competitive market of life.

Unintentional Existence: Repository Cistron (Gene)

Every second on a call
Every words she says
And stores in cistron dust
Had been said days before
And days after by the same
Silence at the end;
… Now and then she calls.

Talking to a doll through a dull
Probably hearing all or not at all
Packing emotions in repository dust
That is shuffled and floating in air
Longer and larger than its container
Hoping for flesh or fresh start at the end
… Now and then she calls.


Protein is all you need
Enzymatic Imagination real as reality
Like dust to dust,
Even proteins give-up the ghost to Amino acids
Likewise polysaccharides to mono
Lipids to glycerol & fatty acids.
I am a biochemist, are you…?

Do you feel the energy-
Our polymers are dead!!!
Chaperoned by Acetyl-CoA
Sailing them south; I think “TCA”
And then electron transport chain
Death is so stingy & greedy
Making ATP from such tragedy.

Do you feel accomplished?
You can’t resist it
CO2 is released in catabolism
Great metabolites
Great Acetyl-CoA
The reverse could also be the case!!

Native Fly: Biochemistry

Of which I study
Results never encouraging
Should I be bionic
For you to accept wit
Day and night
Robber of an off day
No rest
My witty wit been dead beaten
Oh … Biochemistry; It is not that am lazy
Back in space remember
Remember, my forefathers never studied
Yet they knew the usefulness of flavones
Including consequences of starvation
And added vegetables to their dishes
Genetics and traits
Its bug is demonic
Body a temple
They had no concern with metabolism
However, palm wine sharpened their vision
Crops grew by the pathway
They knew not of the simple-complex pathways
Now I cram and draw structures
Of sugary sugar, chlorophylls, fats, and proteins
Who sent me down this pathway?
Unto the last-minute on the pathway
You can never be the last-ditch
You can never be my last wish
We shall split wit like the last slice
Biochemistry the brainteaser
It is not that am lazy
Results never encouraging
Metabolism they understood not. But energy.
Glycolysis big grammar, lipolysis a misery
Oh … Biochemistry; it is not that am lazy.




I think I have fallen

For yet another angel

I’m an alien, she calls me

Martian and space invader;

But in her orbital and shell,

Science says I’m all she cares

So I nickname her caring Allen.


Whenever she is heartbroken I’m free

I speak all what she loves to hear

My sounding movement takes her of the chair

But why does she care, Science know.

I’m polygamous and excited

She is not the first, nor the only

And never would be.


I think she has fallen from the bottom

Where I’m scared not to further, I’m an atom

So little with a whale phantom

She can’t do without me

She cares because she sees me

No one dare with a naked eye

Yet they believe and draw me so well.
