Retirement

With apologies to one of the all time great poets – William Henry Davies- for taking inspiration from one of his master pieces-his poem ‘Leisure’:

What is this life if, full of scare,

We have no time to sleep and snore.

No time to take a nap to beat the heat,

And snore as loud as the drum beat.

No time to sleep during working hours,

Where we can be envy of many others.

No time to dream in broad daylight,

Fantasies, that fascinate us at night.

No time to turn and toss in bed at will,

And have the freedom to keep the thoughts still.

No need to wait till darkness sets in to,

Enjoy the siesta with no office to go to.

A poor life this if, full of scare,

We have no time to sleep and snore.
