Too Much Sun



Some guys are cut out for retirement That certainly doesn't apply to me If I had my druthers, I'd still be working This is surely not my cup of tea Used to be such an active fellow Was hard at work twenty-four seven Up until virtually all hours of the night Now I'm lucky if I make it past eleven This poetry site is my saving grace Without it I'd surely go berserk Well maybe that's overstating my case But you get it, I thrive on work Perhaps there's a big surprise in store I'll inherit a million big ones From a distant long lost cousin of mine Might be getting too much sun! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Hi Jack.. I love this poem. Even though I have not yet retired, I know that when I do, I will always have those little words floating around my head that eventually settle into format of poetry. Well written.xx

    You're better than me... I fall asleep around 9pm... no matter where I am tho usually the couch... and my dogs and dragon and cats all sleep on the back of the couch or around me... Unless the dragon gets greedy!... Then I wake up with him on the couch and me on the floor... LOL... It's amazing how much happens when I'm asleep...

    Count yourself lucky, my friend. I'm soooo looking forward to retirement and days of nothingness. Nice writing, Jack. :)
