Don’t Dementia This

We should all look forward
to dementia,
there’s nowt else certain,
that’s for sure:

Once embraced,
by this progressive disease,
it’s a drawn-out death,
of old memories.

History, recent years,
clean erased,
our marriage would be

So with presence of mind,
here, my living will,
at that point please,
fine wine, and the pills.
