Poem - Forgetful

Post date: Dec 09, 2012 11:15:40 PM

By Simbo Rumblebelly 

There's something I should do today

A place to go? A thing to say?

But what it was, I now know not

I'm sad to say I've clean forgot

My mind is blank!

My memory, soon, I hope to wake

The more I think, my head it aches

No pennies drop, no bells do ring

I've forgotten almost everything

My heart has sank

Perhaps it could involve a friend?

Was there a letter I should send?

Or relatives that I must see?

Is someone coming round for tea?

Should I prepare?

I root around in desks and drawers

In cupboards, and behind the doors

I even look beneath my bed

But nothing pops into my head

There's nothing there!

I walk around, retrace my steps

I hope to still remember yet

I study everything I see

And hope the thoughts come back to me

But I'm perplexed

I think of things from yesterday

And hope new thoughts will come my way

I've forgotten many things before

And remembered them again, I'm sure

But still I'm vexed!

Perhaps if I don't think so much

I won't feel like I'm out of touch

I try to clear out all my mind

And leave the thing I need to find

There must be one....

Hurrah! I think I do recall

By mind's no longer blank at all

I have remembered just in time

My task it was to write this rhyme!

And now it's done!
