A Train of Associations Derailing in a Pun

Drinking my early morning java, the thoughts start to percolate up
From who knows where. First thought: prime matter.
The train of associations proceeds: materia prima --> primadonna -->
"Donna, Donna, the Primadonna. . ." (Dion and the Belmonts) -->
La donn' e mobile --> Madonna the BVM --> Madonna the singer -->
A material girl in a material world --> Materia Pri-Madonna!

Funny how the mind works, "a train bound for nowhere. . . ."
