Forget Me Knot


Michael is in trouble for he missed a crucial date.
His diary is not written in, his calendar’s a state,
and if it is your birthday, I think that you may find
that the happy day for Michael, is a blank space in his mind.

Alexander, a close friend of his, decided on a plan,
which he hoped would give young Michael an extended memory span:
‘With all the most important things you really need to spot
we’ll rally round and tie you into an enormous knot! ’

And so the plan of action was installed without delay
and tested by the advent of Von Wormenthall’s birthday:
But Michael let the side down and the day passed without note -
come evening time his friends arrived and on his door they smote:

And after some admonishment, and wondering what went wrong,
recollection hit young Michael like a great big thundering gong!
He looked at them with tearful eyes and hands up in the air,
‘It’s not entirely all my fault, now come on chaps, be fair! ’

‘I have to say whoever tied me in this silly knot,
forgetting that I’d sure forget, he himself forgot:
You really should have tied another straightaway behind
for reminders need reminding what the knot’s there to remind! ”
