Your Haiku, Please?

We concluded our Top 50 Brain Teasers post with the challenge: Haiku brain exercise

#50. Can you write a haiku describing your experience doing some of the previous teasers? The simple rules: write 3 lines, which don’t need to rhyme, containing 5,7, and 5 syllables. There were a number of great and fun takers…you can enjoy their haikus below.

Let’s now change the theme: Can you write a haiku describing what problem you would like to see brain research solve? Remember the simple rules: write 3 lines, which don’t need to rhyme, containing 5,7, and 5 syllables. You can leave your haiku as a comment for extra points…

Previous haikus on brain exercise:

Haiku’s are easy
But sometimes they don’t make sense

I thought I did well
Then I reviewed my answers
I am retard

New information
Synthesizing my knowledge
A forward movement

Painfully easy
Significantly harder
Mental stimulus

This was fun, and no,
I don’t intend to haiku.

the noon hour portends
a burrito with salsa
brightening my tongue

Wounded, mind leaves me

frontal lobe work hard, harder
no senility

Yours , please?
