Of All the Things I’ve Lost, I Miss My Mind the Most

These days I’m betting

There’s a lot I’m forgetting.


I hate to say so,

But I think I’m getting low

On brain cells and recollection

That used to be perfection


I’m beginning to feel

My brain’s turning to oatmeal


I tried to do those brain games online—

To tighten up my failing mind,

But as they all start with math

Which I hate, I just took a bath.

Ah well, it’s just age, you see—

It eventually happens to you and to me.


Now where in the world is my purse?

I think I left it in the freezer (or worse).

It’s true I’ve lost a brain cell or two,

So beware—it’s going to happen to you!
