Being Cynical Can Lead To Dementia

Cynical Jim
by Rachel Hoyt

At birth he hated all things square
And cried when points approached,
Once old he forgot that he cared
And many points encroached.

While young he grew to mistrust suits
And uniforms, (They're shackles!)
Once old his one friend was named Boots -
The mail man known to cackle.

In high school he fell in love fast
With prom queen, Jessi May,
Once old he smiled when she walked past,
Forgetting past dismay.

He spent his life trusting no one,
A cynic to the core,
Once old he forgot he'd missed fun
And couldn't define "bore".

A new study says that cynics might be hurting their brain -
They're more inclined to develop dementia, a sanity sprain.

  1. Some people will believe anything
    Others are more questioning
    Beliefs are seldom based on fact
    Myths and fiction join the act
    I'll answer to cynic if doubt is the question
    If you'll answer to fool at any suggestion
