The birthday's mixed blessing

The discounts are now quite a few
And cause for a feeling that's blue
It's true--what a drag
As the parts start to sag
A bonus for age sixty-two

    The discount collected was due, when I'd had a drink of fresh brew, leaving the pub, I tripped on a rug, Now sporting some new black and blue. lol I know pub and rug only sound alike ... Enjoyed your limerick

    One place I know gives them at 55, so I got my first one over there but never have even used it yet. Because nowadays we don't have the money to even eat out. And sad part is, we are not even on SS yet. UGGGG
