On Your Head

cat-coverThe pencil –

it’s behind

your ear,

your glasses

on

your head

You put them

there

the last time

Why am I

so

brain dead?

The shopping list

sits smirkely –

left behind on

my unmade bed.

The cat’s been

fed twice

this morning,

He knows

he’s well

ahead.

But where are my

fucking glasses?

Where I put them –

on

my

head…

I’ve been to and from

the same

room three times!

With my forgetful,

empty

head.

I forget just about

everything –

but mainly my glasses

on my head.

And I know I stashed

a joint

somewhere

But it’s not there

where I said.

I forget just about

everything

especially

the glasses

on my head…

  2. Oh my dear Kait, you are always going to bring a smile to my face or a full on guffaw, thank you for that, I’ve been feeling miserable all day today and you just lit my face up with your (funny) yet so true to life poem.

      • Have you heard the news? The Donald has been given notice of eviction from Pennsylvania Avenue, now all we need is to oust Cummings from Downing Street and Morrison in Australia then the world can take a new direction which benefits everyone, except the 1% who have had it all their own way for too long. 🙂🙏🌻🧡I haven’t stopped smiling all weekend since Bernie declared Joe and Kamala POTUS elect and VPOTUS then the icing on the cake? tRump threatening to fortify and occupy the oval office to avoid jail.
