The affliction is common now.
It affects bankers, politicians, businessmen.
When asked to verify a particular event
they confess to being unable to doing so.
When asked to identify a signature
they stare at the hand as at a foreign member.

They can, they say, only presume
that if the cheque bears their signature
they must have signed it, but they have
no recollection of signing and no
knowledge of what happened to it.
Forgettable places: Seychelles, Cayman Islands, Jersey.
