Brain Power

Using your brain
To gain power
Is always a good option.

When your family can’t afford to pay the electric bill,
Sell your brain to science
And your family can use the compensation
To pay enough on the power bill
To heat the house
For maybe one, two, or more days and nights.

That would really be “using your brain” to gain power.

I began working on this humorous piece in a Poetry Workshop presented by Sarah Elkins.  It was the third project I began in response to flipping through the pages  of  Jennifer L. Verdolin’s Wild Connection and following a tangent from the two previous poems, Winning at Love and Sorry Guys – Size Matters.
