Don't Let Brain Rust: a Poem
Whether young or very old
educated or still learning
brain not used is growing mold
with all fuses quickly burning.
Without brain on our side
emotions play tricks on us
people take us for a ride
and we always fuss and fuss.
Brain is our biggest treasure
when it's weakened we are done
with every joy and every pleasure
and all that used to be a fun.
"You don't use it---you must lose it"
as they say and they are right
so push it harder but don't bruise it
and keep yourself smart and bright.
Use your head for a knowledge test
use it for an inspiring chat
even use it for a spiritual quest
but don't just use it for wearing hat.
