Perils of Men in Retirement

by Julie Grenness, in Australia

Your men are going to retire one day,
Very old joke—is this your hunch?
You married him for better or worse, not lunch!
His first day at home, what’s he going to do?
He wants to come to the supermarket with you!
Now this is a man on a mission,
Buys half the shop with no permission,
Now he wants you to cook this lot,
A retired husband is a full time job!
What’s this? He’s gardening with his chainsaw,
Well, those were your plants… but wait, there’s more,
He’s bought an electric guitar,
You wish his greyboy band would go far
Away, that is! Oh no, not this,
He wants to go camping with his grey old miss,
NO! NO! God gave you a home, not a tent,
Yes, girls, camping is a defence,
Well, aren’t we both having fun?
Wife wishes she’d bought a gun,
Never mind, it’s only retirement together, day one!

My hubs retires in 15 days. I think it will be a whole new experience. I don’t think he’ll last being retired, I mean! 😂
