Opposite Poem

Standard

Tragedy or joke — you tell me —
Ask an elder how he is (prepare for the pause)
“Well, my memory isn’t as sharp as it used to be,
And, hmm… my memory isn’t quite what it once was.”

*****

My father is one of the smartest men I have ever know. Seriously, for years I was sure that he knew everything.

Tragedy.
