A journey in time with Alzheimer's

New Battleground

Slow down, walking too fast
Broken bones … forecast
Hurry cane … came today
Shoved aside …NO WAY …you say
Your …mind’s …out of gear
No adherence …I fear
Your thinking’s …askew
New concept …for you
Zooming …around
Fall …to the ground
Just …use the cane
A …NEW BATTLEGROUND!
