A poem about memory and time, composed of recent tweets by Larry KingJason O. Gilbert8/09/16 1:12pmFiled to: NewsPop & CultureInternetEditSend to EditorsPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkGetty Images for Race To Erase MSI.I have no desire to eat clams;I don’t have the patience to play chess.I can’t trust cars that drive themselves—I never get jet-lagged flying west.AdvertisementI hate when I can't remember little things;I never learned how to roller skate.Do you think a walrus enjoys its life?Three hours is too long for a debate.I hate anything that falls from the sky;I’d never want to live above the 20th floor.Do funeral homes ever have a bad year?Does anyone drink water from the faucet anymore?October is the best month to fly;Everyone’s talking Pluto, but I'm a Mars kinda guy.II.I don’t like wearing short-sleeved shirts,(I lived in Miami for many, many years).If I were 40 years younger, I’d get an earring;If I were a woman, I wouldn't pierce my ears.AdvertisementDo you think Moses knew the world was round?Are birds ever scared of heights?What size shoe did Cinderella wear?Would you swim in the ocean at night? I wonder what it’s like to be a frog—Cantaloupe and honeydew are gifts from above.I’ve never held or shot a gun;You can never plan to fall in love.Sometimes I repeat myself, but I don't care:No one can be mad at a teddy bear. III. Why do we all love parades?Did you see the moon last night?A day seems better when the sky is blue;Why are piano keys black and white?Does a prison executioner really like his work?Most people look better in black.I left Brooklyn but Brooklyn never left me;As Arnold would say, I'll be back.I love sweet plums in the summertime;The French really know how to make toast.One thing I’ll never do is bungee jump:Was Casper really a friendly ghost? My wife looks naked when she doesn't wear her ring;The last thing I’d want is to be a real king.
