We pitched aluminum pots,

‘Cause aluminum seeps into brains….

Causing them to misfire

Losing memory of relatives’ names.

We always had our puzzles

And I started a blog…

That dementia “bug” can’t cut a rug

If we stay away from the fog!

Some memory loss is natural,

Dementia strikes fear…

We pray we may remember each other

As long as we’re living here!

One thing that’s obvious though is that the whole thing was orchestrated by the usual suspect in the  Democrat  coalition.  After all, there was bomber Bill Ayers, right there in front of the cameras.

Pleased as punch about it all.

What the cameras weren’t showing was   how the Soros funded usual Democratic thug machine orchestrated the whole thing.

With usual suspects.

Or that the thugs went in looking for heads to break.

It’s important to remember that this wasn’t some little…
