Your life in neat little
Boxes categorized
And alphabetized
With little index
Cards marking each
Event in chronological
Order and ensure its
Kept up to your standards

With a felt tip pen
So you can remember who
To forget, who to keep
At a distance and who to hold
To tight that they too
Will run away
