Gabe, you wake up in the morning,
With nothing to do,
How youíre going to fill your day,
You havenít a clue.
By the time youíve had a leisurely breakfast
Your energy starts to sap,
Before lunch the chances are,
Youíll find the time to fit in a nap.
At lunch, avoid drinking coffee,
Thatís far too soon,
You donít want it keeping you awake,
All the afternoon.
Get some fresh air,
Go into the garden for a bit,
Having a nice long sit.
When youíre thoroughly worn out,
With all that fresh air,
Take yourself back indoors,
To your favorite armchair.
Where you can have a good contemplate,
About ways to get thinner,
But try to fit in 40 winks,
Just ahead of dinner.
Then relax in the evening,
Trying to understand,
How you only managed to get done,
Half the things youĎd planned.
Never mind, donít bother yourself,
With any regret or sorrow,
Youíve got plenty of time to fail,
To do it all again tomorrow.
Enjoy your retirement.
