Damn! …. Dementia! ….. [inspired By A Message From P H Friend Valsa G.; I Forgot To Capitalize In The Body Of The Poem] - Poem by Bri Edwards

now that we're getting well on in years,
there's a pox which to some brings tears.
it's several conditions, all called dementia.
and i say this to it: 'who the hell sent ya?

the mind no longer works as it used to do,
dementia can make an idiot out of me or you.
better to die and save a lot of unneeded head-aches.
i think it best if one with dementia sleeps ………
and never wakes.

    Am not sure if this is a personal piece or if this is just a responding piece. Hopefully this is just a responding piece and that you never get dementia or anything like that. Stay strong and stay healthy. (Report) Reply

    And some of us have been demented since birth
    You have to play it for all its worth.
    I must include all those crazy women... my heavenly bane.
    Not a one of them quite right in the brain.
    And don't expect me to believe that Bri has been all there
    He's been as nutty as butter pecan ice cream, I do swear!

    I'm sorry to hear about your dementia blight
    but it is okey if poems you still can write
    It is only serious when you rave and rant
    Or you go out shopping not wearing your pants
    thanks Bri
