RKS Poetry “When I Retire I’m Going To….”

“When I Retire I’m Going To…..”

So very busy
busy busy busy
Working like a slave
Fearlessly avoiding the grave
Many allegedly loving it
God help taking a vacation
best forfeit it like a true American Megacorp employee
lest somebody leap into senior management view in your reckless absence
but you have convinced yourself you will do everything you wanted when you retire
but look around and listen to the countless stories of death and crippling disease shattering
the Russian Roulette of life and living your dream
but your phone is buzzing like a scream
gotta answer that because it’s a big deal
and your life it will steal
