Selective Recall. - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg
An elephant never forgets
The things he's done which he regrets.
He cannot edit memories
which human beings do with ease
This is a burden he must bear
increasing slowly year by year.
His past mistakes accumulate
and he is weighed down by their weight.
But human beings can erase
all memories of their younger days
By wiping out the evidence
they can protest their innocence.
I'm glad I'm not an elephant
and can block out what I don't want.
