Hunter County

(a poem about Alzheimer’s disease)

My home is in Hunter County.
That’s where I was raised.
Do you know where that is?
You see, I’m old.
I finished high school there.
My parents sent me away to college.
All my children finished school.
I used to sing the blues.
Then I got born again.
Excuse me, but can you
tell me where I am?
My children don’t know where to find me.
My home is in Hunter County.
That’s where I was raised.
Do you know where that is?
I’ve been born again.
