The brain, so filled with thoughts

Imaginations brewing from its base

Like from the brewery’s fermentation vat

The sense of speech, so connected

The wiring so systematic

Such that speech is automatic

So much beer, waiting to leave the vat

Through the horn, so wired

Yet, the atmosphere looks so cloudy

The sky so cloudy

Like it will rain blood, if the beer sprouts

What will fall? the horn dreads!

Doff your hats for the quill

That’s as loud as the horns

Picking beer from the vat like seeds unto the land

The Quill, Oh! you have saved many lives

I have you, no need to fret

Take it slow, write all you can!
