Troubled Mr. Maddox
having a hard time remembering facts
It comes with age
he was so discouraged

It made him despondent
for his senior moment
Always grumpy
never was a chummy

One day, he thought of something
that Mnemonic was his thing
It assist him
in remembering
made a difference in his entire well-being

This is a tribute to my father. I salute him for his sharp memory even at his old age. Although he can’t sing well, I heard him sing songs that rhyme. He even played the chess really well. He always remind us then that we needed to boost our brain power. A rusty mind is a dull mind. If you are dull, then you are not interesting.

A mnemonic (/nəˈmɒnɪk/,[1] the first “m” is silent) device, or memory device, is any learning technique that aids information retention or retrieval (remembering) in the human memory. Mnemonics make use of elaborative encoding, retrieval cues, and imagery as specific tools to encode any given information in a way that allows for efficient storage and retrieval. –
