My Forgetter and Rememberer

I got this in my email and thought it was cute:
My forgetter's getting better,
But my rememberer is broke
To you that may seem funny
But, to me, that is no joke


F
or when I'm 'here' I'm wondering
If I really should be 'there'
And, when I try to think it through,
I haven't got a prayer!

Oft times I walk into a room,
Say 'what am I here for?'
I wrack my brain, but all in vain!
A zero, is my score.

At times I put something away
Where it is safe, but, Gee!
The person it is safest from
Is, generally, me!

W
hen shopping I may see someone,
Say 'Hi' and have a chat,
Then, when the person walks away
I ask myself, 'who the heck was that?'

Y
es, my forgetter's getting better
While my rememberer is broke,
And it's driving me plumb crazy
And that isn't any joke
.

CAN YOU RELATE?? ?


Barbara
P.S. I especially relate to the part about putting something away in a safe place. I am always putting something somewhere where I will find it easily, but then I can't remember where I put it!
