Now that I retired I am very tired,
Being old ’n retired suits me not.
Peace what I desired, but damned fate conspired
To give me absolutely naught.
So I decided I shan’t be blighted
By my retirement’s ugly rot,
I shall be guided - not just half-hearted -
To end “Retirement” with a dot.
So as from now on, there will be new dawn,
I’ll fulfil my own requirement.
Ring the carillon, cross the Rubicon,
I’m retiring from retirement.
