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! 

Comfort me with Cabernets.
My brain’s not screwed in tight.
Help me plug my ears in case it

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.
