Adult Adhd - Poem by Chuck Audette

Adult ADHD
has gotten me
too much TV
can't you see?

surfin the web
can't concentrate
I'm at my job
but my brain is late.

chores at home
still not quite done
and I should exercise
but my mind has run

I want to write more
but this is all I can do
losing track
this poem's about who?

    Hahaha! I am giving into it! But at my age feel no guilt! Just a privileged and bore amenity! Enjoyed your poem of the day too. Reminded me of that famous movie. Too bad name slipped from mind! (Report)Reply

    Hey Chuck! This is a hilarious poem. Now you have to do one about ADD (without the H) . Good to hear from you, buddy. Your comments inspired me many a time. (Report)Reply

    I see you've already got 17 comments for this, obviously because everyone identifies with it, including me, so let's make it 18! (Report)Reply

    Many will identify with this...including yours truly :) But...just how DO we break the infernal mould? I think that's what I meant...

    Chuck,
    I enjoyed this one a lot. You have I think a terrific sense of humour. P.S...I've often been there myself (easily distracted) .
    Hugs Dee

    I don't know why this is so low-rated; I think it's good. I can relate as I think it may be my problem (reading lots on subject for some time) . Humorous take on a not-fun disorder (cursed genes!) , and what is life without humor re: affliction? Thanks! (Report)Reply
