Whosit, Whatsit, Wheresit

3885328_blog_half-cropped Once upon a time,
Can’t remember when,
Way back there,
Way back then,
Someone told me something,
Can’t remember who,
Can’t remember what it was
But if I ever do
I’ll write it on a thingum
And put it somewhere safe–
I think the little whatsit
Would be the perfect place.
I wouldn’t trust the whosit
With the thingamy because
I can’t remember where it is
Or where it ever was.
My memory is excellent,
It’s never failed me yet,
The only things it can’t recall
Are things that I forget.
