I Forget

Once upon a time, 
Can't remember when,
Way back there,
Way back when,
Someone told me something,
Can't remember who, 
Can't remember what it was,
But if I ever do, 
I'll write it on a thingum
And put it somewhere safe--
I think the little whatsit
Would be the perfect place. 
I wouldn't trust the whoozit
With the thingamy because,
I can't remember where it is
Or where it ever was.
My memory is excellent;
It's never failed me yet.
The only things it can't recall
Are things that I forget.
