Poetry – Combination



Hydrogen, oxygen and carbon,


in ways sublime,

To construct a new bargain.


In protein and DNA

They create a new alphabet,

To make a world at play

That the universe won’t forget.


In coils, fibres and globules

In viscous solutions,

Sparking electricity in

The wise or fools,

Fomenting evolution

Along their very own rules.


What a combination –

Creating plant and nation.

Organic molecules

Resulting in spaceships and schools.



And oxygen –

Amen amen amen.
