The Seven (Billion) Wonders of the World**

The list began with seven
Wonders on this planet earth,
Some of natural beauty,
Some of shiny worth.

But the list forgot one place,
Or rather seven billion,
The human body is a maze,
Its wonders, many million.

Beginning at the top:

Mount Never Say Neverest*, a brain,
Taking years to grow to size.
But with time, belief, and hard work
Its peak may cause surprise.

Then down the slope of the nose
To the Great Barrier of Teeth*,
So strong they Machew Picchew*,
And help you when you eat.

Teeth covered by solar ecLIPS*,
Blocking light from the mouth.
When it’s only partial eclipse,
A smile can peek out.

The Great Wall of Spine-a*
Helps you stand up straight.
It lines the mountain of your body,
Provides courage to change your fate.

Then the vast Gastric Canyon*
With a river rushing through,
Millions of food bits every year
Travel far and wide and to.

Colofeetum* at the legs’ end,
Showcase speed of many sorts.
There are two of them to help you,
For peace, battle, or sports.

Not only is it a wonder,
That the body gets things done.
It also helps you out,
When things are not so fun.

The Kneethern Lights* appear
When you bruise your knee,
Changing shapes and colors
Until the pain will flee.

Tears spout like an Eyeser*,
When you are feeling sad,
Release pressure from your mind,
And soon you may feel glad.

This is just to name a few
Of our body’s brilliant features.
In this quite impressive world,
We are truly wondrous creatures.

* Mount Everest
* Great Barrier Reef
* Machu Picchu
* Solar Eclipse
* Great Wall of China
* Grand Canyon
* Colosseum
* Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis)
* Geyser, Old Faithful
