Brains are like the cars we ride
When put in gear and driven;
The highest peak or loneliest stretch
Is climbed and conquered, striven.
But fuel they need, and ignition too,
Or far they will not go;
Nor accomplish much on Life’s long trip
But waiting for a tow.
‘Cause brains not used are like the cars
Neglected ’til they’re rusted;
Though power lies beneath the hood,
Ignored, is just like busted.
But with the proper tuning,
Attention, love, and care,
Brains last much longer than the cars
And none the less for wear.
