Feynman diagram as naive plot device: 

 

Electron llepton (Clever = green arrows), passes within field of hhadron (Hub of the Wheel = red circle), and emits force-carrying v*photon(mother-child attraction = blue curvy line) which deflects one of three qquarks (Mother-Sister = distracted black arrows), and initiates change. Gluons (force-carrying particles = see fuzziness below) apply Strong Force as 3 quarks (Mother-Maiden-Crone) bob up and down, cycling from red to green to blue, repeat.

Virtual proton: 2 up quarks and 1 down quark of cycling colors

Virtual proton: 2 up quarks and 1 down quark of cycling colors

 

Force-carrying gluons are, even in models, unsee-able, and analogous to the seven forbidden change agents of magic:

 

necromancy = the dead
geomancy = the earth
hydromancy = the water
aeromancy = the wind
pyromancy = the fire
chiromancy = the hand
scapulimancy = the bone
