I’m having trouble with my ears –
They do not see so well.
My eyes are also failing fast –
They’ve lost their sense of smell.
My nose has lost its power of speech,
My tongue, its sense of touch;
Alas, your sympathy’s in vain –
My hands can’t hear you much.
– by Carey Blyton
This poem reminded me of Kevin Beckman, played by Chris Hemsworth, in the 2016 film Ghostbusters.
