The Brain - Homeschool Humour

We've all got a brain, you know Though it cannot quite be seen It stays imprisoned within our skulls To be heard, it's very keen It often finds it's way outdoors Through our toothed facial channel. It plans a detour, when our lenses spot An approaching academic tunnel But, what does a brain look like? I often sit and ponder. How does it feel within our skull? How does it taste, I wonder! So I went to ask my mama "How does a brain look?" She said, she would show it to me But then, pulled out a book She showed me all the diagrams And read all the relevant text Explained to me bit by bit Assuming, I was interested Cerebral cortex and cerebellum And all the labelled lobes Muscles movements and memories A place for maths, a place for hopes To her dismay, I spilled the beans, "That's not quite what I wanted, I intended to see a brain hands-on But, thanks for what you imparted." "I think I've quite understood The functions this book explains", I informed mama with a smile, "My one question, but, remains" "What is it, my dear one? Let's work it through together" "What does a brain taste like, mama? I solemnly wonder" Like a frozen deer in headlights, She stared at me bewildered! Her ears vented invisible steam And in gravest tone, she whispered, "How do you declare to know not The taste of human brain?" In countless portions, you chew my harns Yet you dare to pose this claim?!"
