Binturong

A binturong is twice as long:

                You might have thought

                It’s very short -

                In spite of that

                It’s round and fat

A binturong is twice as long.

 

A binturong will get it wrong:

                It goes to school

                And plays the fool

                And makes an ass

                In every class

A binturong will get it wrong.

 

A binturong emits a pong:

             Does not wash well

             No shower gel

             And give up hope

             Of using soap

A binturong emits a pong.

 

A binturong will sing a song:

             High in its tree

             Beautiful harmony

             You may not hear

             Lest you come near

A binturong will sing a song.

In generating public understanding about dementia, the arts and social sciences have as much to offer as neuroscience.  This is the starting-point of a group which has been invited to take up the 2016-2018 residency in The Hub at Wellcome Collection, a flagship space and resource for interdiscipl
