A senior moment
I’m having a ‘Senior Moment’ –
a moment I’d rather forget!
And I’m having that ‘Senior Moment’
to remember some thing – though I bet
that I can’t remember exactly
what it is I don’t want to forget –
It’s a devilish little affliction
that descends in the blink of an eye.
The names of friends and relations
maddeningly pass me by.
I can search in my memory for hours,
trawl the alphabet – furious – then try
‘till two o’clock in the morning
to remember which name just went by.
Was it some name that came out of Shakespeare?
Or something from Latin or Greek?
I felt it had lit’ry connections
Its driven me mad all week.
But then I saw bun at the Bakery –
and immediately knew who I’d seen.
It was Bunny with dear Uncle Arthur
What a stupid old silly I’ve been!
