Forgetful

I think I am forgetting something I shouldn’t forget
I’ve marked it on the calendar but the reason hasn’t struck yet
Is it Anne’s anniversary? Is it Beth’s birthday?
Am I supposed to be at home? Or go out with Beyonce?
Am I supposed to be at Fred’s to catch a football game?
If I’ve stood you up today, I am not to blame
Blame it on my memory. It’s faulty and it’s frail
Storage is all well and good but retrieval is a fail
That’s what age makes you do. Everything goes astray
Oh boy I can’t remember just what it is today

  1. Ha, this one is great. The rhymes are wonderful and the flow is so good. It’s somehow classic but also contemporary with the humor about pop cultural things. Well done! 😀 Thank you for sharing and thank you also for liking my post on Right Better. 🙂

  2. I played hide and seek with myself. I tried to quit. I don’t like it. But apparently I hide my keys from myself. Hide my shoes sometimes too. then I have to go find them. I tried to quit this game a few times but find myself playing it more often the older I get! Haha! at least I see I am not alone!
