THEY CALL ME AUSSIE "Hey Aussie", they call in a friendly, loving way, Never Liz or Lizzie or Beth, or any other given name. Just plain old Aussie, seems it's always been that way, Tho' I've been here 30 years or more it's now become a game. "Hey, what's my name?" I ask with a poke and a wink, "C'mon," I say, "Surely you know after all this time?" They stop and stare and turn a little pink, It's been so long since intros were made, my name has slipped their mind! c ELR 2013

    Loved the poem. I'm among those forgetful ones. Fortunately I can remember my name and where I work.
