Don't Let Brain Rust: A Poem
Whether young or very old
educated or still just learning
brain not used is growing mould
with all that wiring quickly burning.
Without brain on our side
emotions play tricks on us
people take us for a ride
with other loonies in the bus.
Brain is our biggest treasure
when it's weakened we are done
for there goes our sense of pleasure
and every capacity to generate some fun.
"If you don't use it----you lose it"
as they say and they are so right
so push harder but don't bruise it
just keep yourself smart and bright.
Use your head for chess play
or use it for some brainy chat
for a deep thoughts every day
but never just for wearing a hat.
