Fred Regrets Having Retired


By Elton Camp


Retirement Fred began to rue

For Penny said, “I retire too.”


“Both outside and inside there

You will now do your share.”


“Don’t give that pitiful look.

It’s your turn the meal to cook.”


“I’m not going to slave all day

While you watch TV and play.”


“Be sure to wash the dishes too

Then there’ll be more work for you.”


“Half the time you wash clothes.

And of the garbage dispose.”


A development he hadn’t foreseen

For which Fred wasn’t very keen


Though disgust he couldn’t hide

He knew fairness was on her side


Learning what he’d have to do,

Taking retirement Fred did rue
