Retire Means - Poem by Mark Bratlie

Retirements are great events
of that I am quite sure
No more bosses- except for spouses
and for that there is no cure

Work goes on when jobs are gone
but at a chosen pace
And watching clocks throughout the day
is one thing we can erase

Shall I bake a cake or take a break?
I had better stop and think
Meanwhile I will recline myself
and catch a few quick winks

A pension fund can help a ton
when the budget stretches tight
While Social Security in reserve
can bring us true delight

The greatest gift to give a lift
is the chance to shape our days
Time to do things that we love
is a thing that truly pays
