Metabolism. n. The chemic processes that occur in a biologic organism in order to maintain life.
First we begin isagogic
with time so geologic as to be part mythologic

I want all ethnologic replaced by teleologic.
A cell’s engines are bounded by hydraulic
membranes lipophobic and lipophilic
(but not lpgrphic)
with trans and comm proteins to alert the allergic
but we also need an energy workaholic
with might a chondric
and memory aids polycyclic
to reproduce meiotic and mitotic
(often in public)
or it will be sick [sic]
or, worse, necrophilic.
