Alzheimer's Diagnosed - Poem by bobby beddoe

Saw on the I’net an Alzheimer’s tidbit,
Presented by the Mayo Clinic outfit.
It seems as time goes on,
That sometimes a loved one
Will come down with it and act like a nitwit!

Loved ones may simply forget when it is mealtime,
Or at three in the morning think it’s not bedtime,
And In the course of a week
They may not even speak.
Usually all of this happens way past their prime!

Forgetting manners and eating from other’s dish,
And when chastised, they digress to looking peevish;
So, you give some advice,
And say, “Now that’s not nice.”
Speaking affectionately rather than punish!

It’s better to give snacks several times a day,
Rather than their typical meal on a tray.
You can see love in their eyes,
As they down their snack surprise,
As you raise a hand to wipe your tears away!

These listed disease issues are sad, I admit,
But let me make this one point very explicit,
Alzheimer’s I don’t got;
So, now, here is the upshot:
It’s - I fear that from all I read - that both my cat’s got it!
