On Being Retired Poem by Bill Grace

On Being Retired

Rating: 1.5


The surprise in being well retired
Are the things that are no longer discretionary
To help keep you on the planet:
The pills, the exercise, the nutritional care
That in 20s,30s,40s,50s, could sometimes be slacked
But once through the big 50
Are on obligation
If you want to stay.
