Doing Nothing

While political folks dilly dally
Job growth winds down a deep valley
Employers won't hire
Old folks can't retire
The poor house could be our finale

    Truth be spoken when the old fear retiring for they might not have money to live upon for the rest of their lives and since they are old if they quit their job or retire they might not get rehired ever again..Sad state that our world is getting in today..Enjoyed reading ..Thanks for stopping by..Sara

    I was captured by the title because I find myself "doing nothing" quite often - and doing it quite well, thank you very much. But THIS is truly doing NOTHING! Thanks for the reminder. This world is crazy sometimes. Love your writes. Always, Laura
