When you grow up and think smart

Poetry By: Shannan Browne
Editorial and opinion

One day reality hits...

A young girl in her teens

Most often filled with dreams

Then she reaches her twenties

Relishing all the extremeties

Next she hits her thirties

And has to shift priorities

Now thinking about nearing retirement

And making that bond repayment

Getting herself a pension scheme

Into reality, away from the dream

Now a man with less equity

Less drive, capital and respectability

Who is a financial burden

Is not the choice of a smart woman
