Have you ever tried to retire?
What a bureaucratic quagmire!
The decisions to make will keep you awake
Leaving you exhausted and tired!

What to do with your TSP,
and health insurance ain’t free!
You hope you’re alive when you hit sixty five
to collect social security!

The paperwork was a bear!
You’ll be pulling out all your hair,
The issues and queries leave you weak and weary
There are so many questionnaires.

So now in summary,
I’ve made this discovery:
Retirement is hard – you can’t mow your yard
You’ll spend months in recovery!
