The clock is ticking
towards the day –
the hours are spread
to spend in any way that I desire
No need to race to work,
no host of tasks to perform
Still less, a state of stress
no longer daily penance for living.
Retirement from the world of work
came to the rescue in good measure,
choice once more the order of the day.
My choice, to work in a different way,
more rewarding than wage slavery.
In all humility I can say
that the achievements of the elderly
are worth more than any salary.
