    Old age memories

    My forgetter's getting better,
    But my rememberer is broke
    To you that may seem funny
    But, to me, that is no joke

    For when I'm 'here' I'm wondering
    If I really should be 'there'
    And, when I try to think it through,
    I haven't got a prayer!

    Oft times I walk into a room,
    Say 'what am I here for?'
    I wrack my brain, but all in vain!
    A zero, is my score.

    At times I put something away
    Where it is safe, but, Gee!
    The person it is safest from
    Is, generally, me!

    When shopping I may see someone,
    Say 'Hi' and have a chat,
    Then, when the person walks away
    I ask myself, 'who the heck was that?

    Yes, my forgetter's getting better
    While my rememberer is broke,
    And it's driving me plumb crazy
    And that isn't any joke.
    CAN YOU RELATE???
    Cheers MIKE.

    That was a good song, I like your poem Mike. Here is another one.


    Just a line to say I'm living
    That I'm not among the dead.
    Though I'm getting more forgetful
    And so mixed up in the head.

    I got used to my arthritis
    To my dentures I'm resigned.
    I can manage my bifocals,
    But, Oh God, I miss my mind.

    For sometimes I can't remember
    When I stand at the foot of the stairs,
    If I must go up for something
    Or I just came down from there.

    And before the fridge so often
    My poor mind is filled with doubt.
    Have I just put food away, or
    Have I come to take some out?

    And there's times when it is darkened
    With my night cap on my head.
    I don't know if I'm retiring,
    Or just getting out of bed.

    So, if it's my turn to write you
    There's no need for getting sore.
    I may think that I have written,
    And don't want to be a bore.

    So remember that I love you,
    And I wish that you were near.
    Now it's time to post this letter
    So must say goodbye, my dear.

    Here I stand beside the mail box
    With a face so very red,
    Instead of mailing you my letter,
    I have opened it instead!

    Sorry I am not too good at her accent.


    This is what Francis Duggan wrote about her.


    A marvellous woman so witty and bright
    And her whimsical verses are born of delight
    And with the finest of poets she is one who can rate
    And Pam Ayres is a name that we must celebrate.

    And though some literary critics they do not rate her high
    They cannot down grade her though hard they do try
    And they failed to stop Pam in her rise to renown
    It's so true a great talent cannot be kept down.

    Her beautiful smile adorns her pretty face
    And her infectious humour not hard to embrace
    With immortal humourists like Lear and Belloc she is one who compare
    And people like her sad to say seem so rare.

    In years she is one who is beyond her prime
    But she remains the queen of the humorists of rhyme
    She is one who was born with the great gift of song
    And if you cannot find a laugh in her verses with you something wrong.

    Whenever I feel down and burdened by cares
    I open a book of the poems of Pam Ayres
    And she brings some happiness into my day
    For she has me laughing my worries away.

    I have always liked Pam Ayres, her poems are very clever. Certainly very comedic as well.

    Old is when.


    Your sweetie says, "Let's go upstairs and, make love" and you answer, "Honey, I can't do both!"

    Your friends compliment you on your new alligator shoes and you're barefoot.

    A sexy babe catches your fancy and your pacemaker opens the garage door.

    Going bra-less pulls all the wrinkles out of your face.

    You don't care where your spouse goes, just as long as you don't have to go along.

    When you are cautioned to slow down by the doctor instead of by the police.

    "Getting a little action" means I don't need to take any fibre today.

    "Getting lucky" means you find your car in the parking lot.

    An "all nighter" means not getting up to pee.

    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."
