My worst nightmare!

Away from home in a hotel complex

Finding myself on unfamiliar ground;

Unable to locate my accommodation

How had I arrived and where bound?

Where was my own [non-existent] wheelchair?

My walking-stick and capacious bag

With purse, cash cache and personal ID?

Now just a poor soul with urgency to pee.

Whose was this unfamiliar wheelchair?

Purloined from whom, when and where?

Had I left my door with a key in the lock?

Would return find my own pad laid bare?

On sudden awakening - what blessed relief!

Eyes opened at home at my desktop pc,

I’d merely ‘dropped off’ unconsciously:

Feared dementia not yet reality!
