Inside my head is where they rush.
Demanding to know
What was the name of the hand cream used by my mam when I was a kid
In a green tub, remember it had a tight lid?
It smelled of earth and was greasy too.
And if penguins had feet not flippers would they need shoes?
What was the name of the lad at school?
42 years ago the one who.broke all off the rules
Do I have a pen? I forgot to write
The recipe for curry Mike asked me for it, you know mam the one that I like..
Did I turn off the light the one in the yard?
What was the name of the film. with bridges that Clint Eastwood stared?
Is there palm oil in the vegan buscuits I bought?
Is that the cat banging the flap with a mouse that she’s caught?
Did I remember to shut down the damper on the coal fire?
If this rain doesn’t stop soon the river will get higher.
My hubby can sleep on an old washing line.
I might as well get up it’s almost quarter to five!
I wish I could banish the thoughts in my head
Or leave them downstairs with the cat.
While I sneak off to bed.
