    Ah, I remember having bunches of keys, whether for a car, or a huge bunch of fifty keys I had to carry around each day, on foot! :-)

    I love the dynamic between "old keys" and "forgotten passwords" as it gets my imagination having great choices of making different connections. Love it! :-)

    Good poem Dan. I still use a skeleton key for the old house I live in and forget a password weekly.
