Lyme Disease Poem

I thought I share this funny poem on Lyme Disease. If you like it, theres more on this link

Memory

My forgetters 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's that?"
Yes, my forgetters getting better
While my rememberer is broke,
And it's driving me plumb crazy
And that isn't any joke.
