Rather Forgetful

Not just rather

but the want of a nicer word

fails me,


Others would have planned,

and purchased and prepared, but

I was thinking along the wrong lines,

I guess


Failing to correct my errors,

lacking the proper eraser, or perhaps

enough ink to blur the whole mess out


I’ll start over again, next year

just a bit earlier,

If I remember, that is….


It’s nice having an excuse

just in case…..
