Remember, Remembrance

Remember yesterday

Remember the old days

Remember what we used to say

Remember the plays

Oh! We shall never forget

Because we are not set yet

Remember the luscious trips

Remember the hot lips

Remember the posh hotels

Remember the teeny motels

Oh! We shall not go into details

Oh! Remember the tattletales

Remember, remembrance

Of the good stuff and the nonsense

Remember, remember

When we were younger

Now we’re older, smarter

And wiser, we act dumb and dumber

Nobody knows why that we are like that

Thank God, we’re still normal and not fat

Like the strangers and the neighbors who are spying

And harassing us from winter to spring

Remember the good and bad times

That’s life. That’s letting the words and the rhymes

Flow like streams and rivers in autumn

The yellow leaves swim and slide per ton

Remember everything without discriminating

As we ponder, wonder, sigh, dream, and sing

And swing apart somewhere

Remember, remember.
