A limmerick for Poetry Friday, that I based upon this lovely "outsider" art by Maria Forde, whose grandpa was hit by a train in Iowa and got patched up in Omaha.

My grandpa got hit by a train
It took away half of his brain
But they fixed up his head
With a new one instead,
So really he shouldn't complain.
