Memory dances teasingly out of reach.
Again my mind provides the butt
Of a joke – so elusive
That even humour loses its rasping
Chuckle, when confronted by this plight.
This cowering wreck.
Through a diet of sarcasm
Disrespect and the masochistic audacity
To try this absurd play out again and again and
Until knackered –
Visibly shaken –
Memory leaves completely!
On its swift way out!
