    So many people face dementia now or soon. I was heartbroken to watch the Manchester United football team's advert about dementia, and that famous past players like Martin Peters have this curse.

    A classic one line haiku using the best of subverted syntax to give a greater meaning.

    Wonderfully strong work, powerfully poignant, contemporary, and incredibly moving.

    strong and powerful as I watch someone close to me come and go. The one liner captures this poignantly.

    Absolutely interesting. It's also like History and Memories divert and direct attention towards past. Everything that already took place prior, however present moment continues to remain there.
