hey guys how about a new acronym
heard it from a psychologist friend
I was trying to bring up a word it
got itself as far as my mouth then
tangled with my teeth they wouldn’t
let go no matter how hard it flailed
tongue lips no help at all I did
manage to hurl a few accessible
expletives at this increasing irritant
the ugly “a” word included my
friend said you’ve not got that yet
you only have ARCD – what? – ARCD
– Age Related Cognitive Decline – oh,
that! now I patiently wait the word
name memory whatever sidles out
eventually though sometimes middle
of the night an embarrassed pup in
a puddle on the rug but why rage
accept arcding it’s the arch of life
be sure though to rummage in the
fabled pot at the foot of the bow you
might find what you’re hunting for
