I've Lost My Mind
I thought I laid my wallet and keys
by the door, but when I went to get them
they weren't there anymore.
I get so frustrated when I
can't find what I'm looking for.
When I got to work, I knew I couldn’t see,
That's when my boss says to me,
"These papers are important
they need to be read."
"I'm sorry sir, I can't read them
because I left my glasses at home
by my bed.
With a twinkle in his eye he replied,
"Have you tried looking on your head?"
My hubby asked me to stop by
Burger King on my way home,
he wanted a fish filet.
I placed the order, gave the girl my money,
Then I drove away.
"Where's my fish filet?"
"OH NO, I forgot it.
My mind must have gone astray."
My son calls, "I need a ride."
"Of course dear, I'll be right there.
That's what mothers are for."
I grabbed my purse and locked the door,
when I got to the car, I suddenly realized,
my keys were still inside.
(Thank goodness for cell phones)
I'll call his father and swallow my pride,
"Dear, I'm locked out of the house."
"What did you do?"
"Well, I, ah, kind-a, locked my keys inside."
Frontal lobe malfunction,
where my memory used to reside,
Yes, it's finally happened,
I've lost my mind.
