RETIREMENT

Yesterday I was working so hard
And at the end of the day
I was exhausted and TIRED.
But today the sun can rise and set
And I can remember
Or I can forget
I can get up if I've had enough sleep
Or go back to bed
And count some more sheep (and dream about their fleece)
I can stay in my jammies all day (and knit)
Clean my house, or go on the computer and play.
I can dine on peanut butter and jelly (probably will have to!)
Or go out for lunch and cook nuthin'.
Oh how wonderful just adding a "RE"
in front of "Tired"
Can make your world be!

(adapted from a poem by Thena Smith)
