The roots gather the water, the respiring leaves reach out
for the Sun;
Sunlight hits the green pigment and the electron bursts out;
Captured by the Photosystem (II), the electron makes ATP energy;
Sunlight hits the pigment and the electron bursts out;
Captured by the Photosystem (I), the electron is loaded in NADPH made;
The first electron now used up replaces the second electron that departs in
Then the water is split and an electron released from it replaces the first
electron that burst out of the pigment;
All is balanced; the gas has been reduced to food.
The water and the carbon dioxide gas are able to become carbohydrate, food to
be bought and eaten;
The ATP energy made will enable the electron from water, carried in NADPH be
locked into the carbon dioxide to become precious food;
The food is purchased and eaten;
Inhale to get the oxygen;
The electron is unlocked in a controlled explosion to make ATP energy for our
The electron bounces down the carriers in succession building up a proton
Like with the hydroelectric dam, the accumulated protons flow down the valley
and set the ATP pump spinning;
The ATP energy has been made, the food sourced has delivered its energy;
The used up electron is deposited in oxygen gas we breathed and water is made;
The food is broken down to carbon dioxide and water from which it was made;
The electron has come to the end of its journey;
Mhhhhhh, we exhale.
Praise to the Lord who made systems the best human technology cannot.
