Damn! …. Dementia! ….. [inspired By A Message From Ph 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.

    Lovely transport of an equally worthy idea into the poem makes it a treatise on dementia. Enjoyed it. 'dementia can make an idiot out of me or you.' (Report) Reply
