SAVING OR SPENDING

I haven't saved for 
retirement;
I cannot tell a lie,
I've lived my life 
irresponsibly
And you may ask
me why!

I've never earned
much money,
But what I did, I
spent,
From every pound
and dollar
To every penny and
cent.

I dared to have a
good time,
Though never got
in debt,
I earned and spent
and spent and earned
And haven't regretted
it yet!

Why save up for 
your old age,
An age that may not
come?
Putting your money
in a locked up vault
And depriving yourself
of fun!

So to the 'oldies of
the future',
These words are truly
meant:
Be like me and dare
to say:
'Not a penny was
misspent!'
