Bad Memory Limerick

My memory is so bad, that when I spotted the upcoming memory prompt at Haiku Heights I forgot the obvious — that the prompt was for haiku. Ah well, here’s my Bad Memory Limerick:

Bad Memory Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

My mem’ry is bad — getting worse.
It’s a failing I constantly curse.
I forget what I’ve done,
People’s names, whom to shun.
Now what was the theme of this verse?

(For those who can actually remember something, here’s a spot to post your memories in verse.)

    At 50-something the sentiments expressed here are all too familliar to me! I’m pretty sure I’d forget my name if there wasn’t a sign on my desk. :-)

    Hilarious! Reminds me of an ode to essay-padding that I wrote in college:

    However, be that as it may,
    Ipso facto, whereas, I daresay,
    Notwithstanding, withal,
    That is, I can’t recall
    What the hell I was trying to say!

    Read a limerick, an ode to memories bad
    Humor musings satire that drive her mad
    The prompt for Haiku she forgot
    Makes fun limerick’s on the spot
    I declare there is no case here to feel sad

    Thank you Madeline for the share!!
