The Retired Husband
has been heard to say
(several times forsooth and YAY !! )
‘I don’t truly know how I ever had the time
A quantum leap of faith has left behind
the superstitious dreads
of no work, no pay, no money, nothing to do.
He has jumped off the cliff’s edge
into the arms of retired life.
How, you may well wonder,
has he achieved this mindboggling feat ?
I can but assume
there has been an inner shift of sorts.
Someone has taken a spanner
to the cogs that control his thinking
turned them ‘off’ for work,
‘on’ for retirement.
Helped along the way by some
like the sale of his business – YAY !!
the sale of his working ute – YAY !!
the impending purchase of a new ‘leisure ute’
Sleeping in, sleeping on,
sleeping between sleepings
