Treasure Island

Udiah (witness to Yah)

(1959 / USA)

fission vs fusion


Atoms attracted by great gravity
To be compacted into new nucleate
Absorbing energy to smelting rate
Combining into the next unity

The elements increase atomic weight
New ones form inside plasmatic sea
Reach critical mass from forces that be
The unstable fissure then detonate

That is the reason the solar flares warm
It's also the reason white dwarfs are hot
And the reason the red giants are not
It is why sun spots tend to cool the storm
The fusion-fission process of the sun
Emits light and heat for us to have fun

Fusion takes power
Fission gives off energy
Power of the sun

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Far beneath the plasma of the sun's surface, fission occurs and releases energy, while on the sun's surface fusion occurs and absorbs energy. Fission is the power of the sun and fusion its recycling process.
