The Enzyme and the Substrate

Activating a substrate to receive

An enzyme



The electrons

Stretch to welcome

You float above the substrate

Before you form a link

You drift

The activated substrate


But the dumb molecule,

It cannot call

Dear enzyme,

The substrate is your calling

This transformation is your destiny

Oh, but you come so close

But never close enough

You tease the poor substrate

And leave it in a

Constant state of need
