Tangled Affair


Felipe Maximiliano Chacon

A doctor told a young man

during a visit that he had

a damaged memory:

"Take this prescription,

it is an effective remedy,

it will cost you a peseta

and you will be in peace."....


About three days later

the afflicted youth returned.

He said to the doctor, "It has gone badly,

the thing turned out the other way around:

why don't you heal me

of the disease first,

so that with memory I can

take the medicine on time later;

today I forgot to drink it."...
