RIPAE BENI DEAU VER
In modus fasciculumque Brady pus.
Rogationes, confractum egemus.
Ripa nostra, sus amica,
Sic superbum precum, pape beatus.

Retirement, aw yes, looked forward to this time
A cottage on the beach, that would have been fine
But instead here I am
With you guys, hot damn!
Greatest friends I've ever had, so sweet and so kind

“Pensioners taking ridiculous amounts of time at an atm. Oh my god! Are they getting a home
loan?!” Quote from a 20-something, Sydney, Australia, Saturday February 15, 2014
Why do this you old fool ahead of me,
Why aren’t you home and watching TV.
Not out here today,
In all of our way,
We’re in a big hurry, can’t you see.
They say that youth is wasted on the young,
Who’s heads are full of nothing but dung.
Speeding up their thoughts,
With no filters or clots,
Impatience comes free from their tongue.
Remember your words as you speed to your end,
When a lineup you’re in without a good friend
To be there beside you,
And help read the menu,
While a smart-ass kid has to rend.

Retirement in the Mountains
There once was an old mountain man.
He hunted and lived off the land.
He always felt fine.
When he danced in moonshine.
So he danced and imbibed like he planned.

Believe it or not, I just acquired a new client
Still at it at 80, something's out of alignment
Should have hung up my mouse
Talents have yet to head south
So, long as I'm breathing, still working on refinement

There once was a ram who retired,
who really was terribly tired.
Having serviced the lot,
he should have have been shot.
But the gun thankfully backfired.
