Sonnet: Is Retirement, A Boon?
Retirement for me has come too soon!
To me, it has not made a difference;
The teaching profession is but a boon;
You keep on working without severance.
But many are denied a pension now;
This causes problems to the aged ones;
How will they feed and treat their illness, oh?
And some are still ‘not-out’ and hitting runs!
The plight of elderly in doldrums lies;
The senior citizens have woes galore;
In misery, most elderly now dies;
Society has to do for them much more!
The elderly need love, inquiry, care;
The modern youth must work for their welfare!
