Science, Nursery Rhymes, and a Song of Praise

Unknown fact: The human brain
explodes when it reaches
breaking point, in remembrin'
all it conceives, perceives.

Remember when the chainsaw
jumped off your hands and severed
your head? And your friend Jill shrieked
then came tumbling after?

(You don't? Praise the Lord!)

Or that plunge down the meat grinder?
When all the Boss King's men
and bleating horses couldn't put
you together again?

(You don't? Hallelujah!)

Semi-known fact: the human heart
is in the human brain,
and likewise should be spared
mem'ries of all dismembrin'.
