The Wonder Of The Human Brain

       The Wonder Of The Human Brain: A Learning Tool

 Beneath the hair

I  think it there.

In the genius and moron

A hundred billion neurons

(more likely eighty-six that charges up our many tricks)

Brainstem/spinal cord connected;

Cerebellum which located

In the rear

For balance, schooling that is motor.

Cerebrum fills most of the skull;

Cortex called cerebral –

Sliced in half, a left and right,

Small other parts for thought:

Decisions, mem’ry , learning(s) sought,

Communication and perception:

Stimulation out and in.

(You’d think the parts were wearing thin).

Brain soft, 

A craft 

In white and gray.

Monsieur Poirot was fond of braying

About his  ‘gray cells’ intellect.

(One sees a giant self-respect)

Two percent of body’s mass

With twenty-five the body asks

To keep it thinking, (bod’ as well)

Energized in best of health.

It gathers up what we call knowledge;

It’s a collage in a  college.

Sleep or in activity, we’re using all that energy.

In other words, the brain’s awake all for our sake:

Yours mine, a mine of wonder.

The real wonder is that it

Creates new cells to keep it fit:

A hippocampus we can’t see

For learning and for memory:

Seven hundred cells that grow

Each day that we don’t know about.

We do not feel them, seal them, heal them.

They’re just there – like air. 

And so the brain rains down upon us

Means and answers, thoughts unanswered,

Mysteries inside

And we’re along for this glad ride.

For whose sake and for why?

Some sort of wonder in the sky?

Could be.
