MY BRAIN IS FULL

MY BRAIN IS FULL

'I've examined you quite thoroughly'
Is what my doctor said.
'It seems there's too much empty space
existing in your head'.
'The vast expanse between your ears
Is that which makes you ill.
It's far too great a cavity
for your small brain to fill.

You need to go expand your mind,
to fill the empty void,
if rattling noise inside your head
you're wishing to avoid.
So I went to the library
and took out lots of books.
Reading lots of stories is
much harder than it looks.

I read and read and read and read
each day, right after school.
I read and read and read and read
until my brain was full.
I read stories about pirates,
I read stories about sport.
I read stories about heroes
and the battles that they fought.

I read stories of adventurers
in jungles dark and green,
stories of explorers finding
lands no one had seen.
I read fiction books, non-fiction books,
and reference books as well.
And very soon I noticed
that my brain began to swell.

I fear I overfilled my brain
'cause it just grows and grows,
and now my poor expanding brain
leaks out my ears and nose.
So doctor can you tell me how
to keep my brain in check.
My brain keeps oozing out my head
and down my face and neck.

If my brain keeps growing
I'm afraid my skull will crack.
Quite frankly, doc, I'd rather have
That awful rattle back.
