An Aging Poet

For poetry, I'll need to see Let the battle of switches begin From the wall switch to the light "Which one is it?" never ends! An aging poet, past my prime My memory now is not acute In truth it has been in decline Ever since I popped the chute! What's next, will I forget my pants? So many lapses, cause me to fret A date, a word,a meal, a hat Who knows what next, I might..........?

There would have to be something definitely wrong with me if that ever happened. Brain damage or something!...........80)

I now often go into a room and then forget why! (At least I don't leave my car keys in my refrigerator - yet!)
