My entire time in school
Was spent in memorizing.
Tables, formulae and dates
Even in my sleep, I would be murmuring.
So I thought of a brilliant way,
To remember all that was taught.
Forming acronyms and associations,
To recall for a mind so fraught.
And later learnt that what I thought
Was my smart super invention,
Mnemonics had been around for a long time
Based on association and observation.
