I try to keep in focus
But life's become more blurred
And all the things I used to do
Seem distant and absurd.
I can't remember anything,
I'd go around the bend,
But I'd forget the road to take
And end up in Oostend.
I rush around the whole day long
In circles on the spot.
I went upstairs to get something,
But, once there, I forgot.
When I go out for shopping
I have to take with me
My passport and my license
- Though not for identity -
I need to take them just in case
I forget where I roam,
So I can read the bloody things
And find my way back home.
I went to see my doctor,
A week ago, last week,
But once we sat there, face to face,
I couldn't think to speak.
But now I'm so glad that I went
I know I'm not alone,
I prescribed two weeks full bed rest
And sent the poor man home.


  1. Fugh it ! I can't remember what I was going to say.Then I remembered that I'd forgotten what it was.
    Ps Thank you so very much for the Quails eggs they were simply delicious.
    Pps i like that poem very much.

  2. Great stuff Weev. Keep up the good work.

  3. I really like the way you did that thing with the wossname. Damned clever. Sending you some hand-knitted yogurt, which looks good with just about everything except pearls. More power to your chainsaw.

  4. Aah, Thanks, Will. But don't forget the oojimiflipsit and the wotchamacallit. Must dash and turn the kettle off - put it on last Tuesday. Didn't fit. Took it off again.

  5. Thankyou for your kind comment Weev. I am strengthening the boobytraps as my first few yellow courgettes are beginning to appear and I'd very much like them to reach maturity!!

  6. Most unlike your 2-legged offspring!!

  7. It's not amneesha, Weev, it's the gin, darling. I keep telling you that seven full measures of Gordons, one of vodka and...oh fuck I've left the iron on

  8. I know - I've spent thirty f**king pounds and eight bast**d pence in that c*** of a swear box....I don't need a recession, I'm a walking p***ing recession.

  9. Money f**king well spent if you arsek me!
