Slow Down

I stole the brain of Einstein to feed a hungry head.
Sliced some in an omelet with a roll of onion bread.
Biting, chewing speedily, to prove his theory chaste:
That time does stall (however small)
When feasting past the taste.

I smeared a slice with cold-cream
Onto a winter face.
In hope that smart-cell makeup
Would return me to my place; meanwhile,
I hid within the basement to escape the force of fate.

Blinded by the science, nowhere left to turn,
I consulted the Necronomicon and prayed I would not burn.
The words were chanted freely -- the cost only this news:
A reversal of the flow of time
For a soul that God refused.

Young and fit and prosperous,
I discarded all the brain.
But in my blackened, empty shell I knew there waited pain.
Tricked, the time sped faster -- faster than before.
When once again the winter came, Einstein was no more.

LOL, so that makes you super insanity. LOL... I believed in science back in my school day. The world is not slowing down, so it has to be a greater vast to fill that empty feeling. enjoyed. linda

It was not the formula created from Einstein's brain that slowed down time and provided a semi-immortality -- it was the spell(s) from the blasphemous Necronomicon and the loss of his soul. Thus, he was "duped by the Devil," as is usually the case. ;-)
