What good is Einstein’s brain without Einstein?
The thoughts are dead – he’s gone to his grave

Einstein’s brain
Kept by Dr Jekell in formaldehyde
Tested for his intelligence by Dr Frankenstein

His genes preserved in a glass case
For the benefit of a master race.

As if his brain will sprout with his theories of space and time
As if a tree of knowledge will grow up from his brain watered by formaldehyde

Oh, Einstein, they’ve placed your brain like a house plant on a windowsill
