Tricks of The Mind

Granddad's a master magician,
A conjurer without compare.
He's famed for his sleight of hand,
A prestigious prestidigitator.

Even though he's got dementia,
He can still make things disappear.
His glasses, his slippers, his stick
Have all vanished into thin air.

Best forgotten

In our family, dementia is known as the 'forget-me-not disease', although it perhaps would be better named 'forget-the-lot'.
