How Smart I Used To Be

Graduating Class

I used to be quite a bit smarter
I feel it whenever I’m stressed
For seizures have mangled some brain cells
And old age has taken the rest

I think I was once a Rhodes Scholar
And I won a Nobel one Fall –
I’m pretty sure I was once smarter
But now I just cannot recall

One thought on “How Smart I Used To Be

  1. I live in an assisted-living community where none of us can remember what we used to worry about. Old age is such a blessing! I can hardly wait. “Are we THERE yet”, I keep tell my grand kids.
