Rabbit Hole Day: Digestion

The question of digestion
Brings vexation, don'tcha know:
How intestinal gestation
Breaks down food and makes you grow
With esophagal transportation (to the stomach and its fluids)
Of asparagus, pasta, flan, and possibly even suet --
And then -- wow! -- there's movement of caloric molecules
To here, and there, and everywhere: Yes! It's your body's fuel!
And thus fat layers, muscles, blood, your little toes, your crotch, your brain
All get portions here and servings there of teeny pieces of pearmain.
Amazing how it works, innit? (I apologize for what's incorrect;
I think this doggerel is scientifically suspect.)
