Buried Brains


They claim that brain drains;
They are the first to drain brains
And the last to die
As easy as pie

Let me rest at least in peace;
Let them claim and cry if they wish
As though I'm a piece of fish
Because my brain awaits burial

I had refused to help others;
Others who never had penny
Penny that could see them learn
But now my brain is buried

I wish I had known;
I would not have frowned
Because of helping the poor
But now my brain is buried

Like a lonely bay;
They saw me lay
In a broad day
But I was buried

Now I'm gone;
With my phone
But my brain
Will not remain

Brain drain;
Drain brain
To help
Others

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
