DEMENTIA

DEMENTIA
Carol Cole

How will I know if my mind starts to go?
Will I be too far gone to trust anyone?
It may have started already – I don’t feel very steady;
my breakfast is cold and my brain’s like spaghetti.

They say you should drink lots of blueberry juice
and relax, pick your battles, or at least call a truce.
Take gingko biloba and play mind-sharpening games;
then try, if you can, to remember those names.

My dad has dementia, my mother does too.
So what are my chances?  I’ll trade them with you!
