as death approaches…

having difficulty recalling
the names
of
friends
unable to
discern critical issues
that
must be addressed
for
personal welfare
leaves mail
unattended
hoping
payment
can be avoided
blurred vision
unable
to
see clearly
what’s all around
increased confusion
and
reduced concentration
so
unable to do everyday tasks
continually talks
about
the past
but
cannot recall
the real events
fantasizes
leaving out
what was
wrong
keeps saying
wants things to be
like
that fantasized world
but
the world cannot
return to
what
never was
so
making
a dying
nation
great again
is not
possible
