Planning To Retire? - Poem by Walterrean Salley

Do you have plans to retire,
And lay in the sun?
Then handle your business,
Or it won't be fun.

Must get that 401 in line,
And build those nest eggs too.
Be sure your fund has enough
For what you'd like to do.

Retiring is more than a notion,
And it's more than a dream.
The thought of such a crucial step
Is much more than it seems.

(9/16 Revised for smoother transition in reading.)

    Hey thanks for the insightful poetic advise, I'm expecting my first retirement check this month, so the notion and the dream will soon prove what it seems. Nice piece of writing Salley..... (Report) Reply
