Milk of absentia

What’s the word we use
to describe when we can’t remember?

It’s on the tip of my tongue…
What is it?
It’s not… no…
Starts with a…. something…
Sounds a bit like….
Not horseradish, but very like it.

Dash it all, Calpurnia!
Have I got dementia?
How to craft poetic gems
with so much in absentia?
