I woke and this dropped out

According to Facebook,
I have only a few memories
to look back on,
I crack on
think what a carry on
where have my memories gone?

And I wonder,
do I really rely upon
that which is so often

I can hear whistling,
it’s probably my brain boiling,

you can’t ask Polly to put the kettle on
those days of a woman and her place
are long gone,

a bit like my memory
