We Have a Brain in our Bum

Scientists have recently discovered

A second brain resides in our bum

Published in Journal Neurosci

This brain in our bum makes it hum

The colon contains many neurons

Millions of hard-working nerves

Firing in synchronous behaviour

Pushing contents down colon’s curve

Why do they call it a second brain?

Because it can act all alone

Requiring no external input

But doing it all on it’s own

This research is hoped to be used for

Understanding of colon disease

To help those with chronic constipation

Giving sufferers some form of release
