Tangled Affair

by

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."...
