Neurographiasics, a poem by Professor Ikechukwu Benjamin Ezeohagwu

Vain or modest,

brain as resolve,

makes wane or soar,

for depth or Height.

Strain or train,

so as brain,

by way of Cerebellum,

growing from stunt,

to equal brunt,

as the Cerebrum.

brain so drain,

away from ridiculing,

brain so crippling,

heart of thoughts,

so poorly  fraughts,

as shadows, so cast.

Do keep, as pure again,

heart of thoughts,

as the first step,

away from descent,

as becoming ascent,

in culture, so vivid in nature,

in culture without frigid in nature,

Immutable, Incorruptible,

are the Laws,

by men not made,

so are the Laws, so Divine,

predate all religions, beliefs, races, thoughts, colours,

so are the Laws as flight,

as brain then becomes,

soar for the Height,

whole, hearty, hale.

In the world, so new,

freed from chaos,

there then no longer,

corruptions, greed, abductions,

killings, slavery, poverty, wars,

but freedom, wisdom, diligence,

genuine consideration for one another,

service and humility.
