Annuitant

Written by: Robert William Service | Biography
 | Quotes (2) |
 Oh I am neither rich nor poor,
 No worker I dispoil;
Yet I am glad to be secure
 From servitude and toil.
For with my lifelong savings I Have bought annuity; And so unto the day I die I'll have my toast and tea.
When on the hob the kettle sings I'll make an amber brew, And crunch my toast and think of things I do not have to do.
In dressing-gown and deep arm-chair I'll give the fire a poke; Then worlds away from cark and care I'll smoke and smoke and smoke.
For I believe the very best Of Being is the last; And I will crown with silver zest My patience in the past.
Since compensation is the law Of life it's up to me To round the century and draw My Life Annuity.
