Samprathi M. Master of the symphony. Ann Indian Acad Neurol 2020;23:815
Long long ago when no one knows,
Somewhere, somehow, like He chose
On the primordial ocean shone the sun,
And the tiniest form of life begun.
One became two, two became four,
Until from one were so many more
Of air, of water, or light, no dearth
Life set out to flourish on earth.
The heart beat and lungs breathed,
The kidneys, gut and liver, pleased
Each for other, by blood they clung,
Together a happy song they sung!
And then one day when Satan struck
The song broken, the rhythm amuck
The beats stopped, the breaths ceased
The kidneys dry, and gut diseased.
Entered the healers with tools of magic,
Decades of wisdom, reason and logic
Beaming with pride, to answer the call,
Raring to go and conquer them all.
Air went in and air came out,
Breathing life into the rout!
Blood came out to become pure,
Its starved friends craved for cure.
The heart endured, the lungs healed,
The salvaged kidneys began to yield.
But alas! The brain! It never woke
Somewhere along, forever broke!
When all was well in harmony
Each for other, in the symphony
The brain, the master, ran the show
His quiet presence hard to know
When the master failed to mend,
Alas, the symphony had to end!
Beyond the magic or might of man,
Prevailed at last, was His plan!
