I can't remember things I should
My thoughts are blurred and that's not good
Recovering thoughts locked in my brain
Is a strenuous task and all in vain

Words dangle just beyond my grasp
A friend has coined this "Synapse Lapse"
Is it a sign that I'm not sane?
Or, toxic sugars on my brain?

Some living brain cells still hold on
Hang by a thread and almost gone
These cells I should not over tax
The few I've got I must relax

My mind's now in a neutral zone
The one cell left is all alone
Are there yet memories in my head?
Nope! Toxic sugars killed them dead!
