'Double' Act !
In Nineteen Ninety Four,
a young man took the floor
for the television show, “Stars in Their Eyes”!
He was, ‘hips-to-feet’ in plaster
as he struggled out, to master
his new crutches, in a bid to win the prize.
The host (then), Matthew Kelly
introduced him on the ‘telly’,
saying “Simon, what a plucky guy you are.

“Old Heads on Young Shoulders”!
You can’t put old heads on young shoulders!”, they say.
But I think that I may have come-up with a way,
involving some sawing - and stitching - and glue
(and a bit of an ‘inclin’, of just what to do!).
Yet, if I decided to ‘give it a bash’,

THE SHIP THEY CALL 'ALZHEIMER'S'
Hello my friend, welcome aboard
The ship they call 'Alzheimer's'
There's forty thousand under sixty-five
'Young onset' to 'Old timers'
It doesn't matter what you call it
The umbrella term's 'Dementia'
On the ship they call 'Alzheimer's'
Every day's a new adventure
Forget your hip replacement
And your osteoarthritis

I had a beautiful parakeet
when I was a child
One day, its foolish feathers failed to shine
and was found in the sawdust at
the bottom of the cage
Knowing the upset this would cause
rushed out to the store for a replacement
and picked the perfect imposter
coloured plumes in symmetry
copycat curve to the beak
and inquisitive shin...
