Brains, Pains, Gains


Thoughts went to the extreme
And so one brain discovered steam
It seems in man's esteem
Brain is the most supreme

Ship-invention through thought-waves
Helped man to overcome sea-waves
To laziness if men were slaves
Surely they would have remained in caves

Once birds ruled the Sky-plain
But brains invented the aeroplane
Discoveries and inventions that look plain
Would have given to brain what a strain!

Everyday dark night appeared
Because of this World suffered
One day night was conquered
Fear about night disappeared

His mind fish astonished
To swim he also wished
Necessary thoughts brain furnished
One day swimming task he accomplished

Men formed so many theories
Through hard-work in the laboratories
Now under the shade of brain-trees
Rest happily all modern countries

Animals simply sat and munched
Trees and animals fog drenched
But human-brain remained unquenched
For new inventions thoughts it launched

Inventions will suffer saturation
In the absence of technical education
If there is perspiration and inspiration
Brain will surely produce innovation

Man has become impregnable
His improvement is incredible
For him everything is controllable
For this, his brain is greatly responsible

Human brain is the only enlightning filament
That will supply light for useful experiment
For the World's improvement and development
We need people who are dilgent and intelligent.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
