The Brain Drain Cabernet. Comfort Me With Cabernets.

By Demand and Popular Request I am re-posting one of my posts – and one of my personal favorites.  Salute! 

THE BRAIN DRAIN CABERNET 
 
 
Comfort me with Cabernets.
My brain’s not screwed in tight.
Help me plug my ears in case it
Wanders out of sight.
 
With a new vintage in one hand
And a corkscrew on my right
I forget about the world
And I sleep just fine at night.
 
I feel like The Brain Drain Cabernet did write itself.  Thank you, Dr., for the inspiration from Greatheart And The Brain Drain:The above poem I wrote – actually it seems it wrote itself.  Sometimes that happens.  And depending on your sense of humor – I give the blame, or credit to Dr. Seuss and the wonders of  http://www.seussville.com/.

And then there are the times when I curse the cursor.

Blinking, blinking, Taunting me, waiting, waiting, naa-naa-na-na-na.  Waiting for just the right verbiage.

Not this time, this is what my fingers blazed:

 
Words. More words. Too many – it jumbles.
The synapsis fires, but the message is mumbled.
Hear it? There it goes, another neuron fires
Process in motion, before complete — it tires.
 
Wait! I remember – I had something to do-
Oops, no I lost it, that thought gone too.
Too much to do, the order scrim-scram
A ‘supposed to’ oops, a muttering, ‘damn’.
 
Lists, they can help and often they do
but then my list of lists – it gets lost too.
So then the solution, how I’ve thought of many
Tried on several, yes, there’s been plenty.
 
The answer right now, ah, I know it, it’s true
A deep rich cabernet , not one maybe two
Pour Self-medication full in a glass
As I tell all the demands to just kiss my —
