Slip Slidin’ Away…

It seeps and creeps with time

deleting pictures and rhymes

Retention is lost

in Winter’s cold frost

While minds become filled with green slime

Today at d’Verse, Bjorn asked us to write a poem that is a riddle, making the reader try to guess what we are talking about. I decided to write about Alzheimer’s disease that slowly eats away at one’s memory till in time it is gone. When I finished my limerick, it took me back to Simon and Garfunkle’s song “Slip Slidin’ Away,” which some of you will remember.
