Change and Getting Older

Just when I retired, thought I had it all figured out,
changes came and what do you think? It all went south!

Now that I am older little things take longer to heal.
Time to think and remember with less pain to feel.

Days seem shorter, the years fly by and I get older.
Gone forever the days when I was young and bolder.

When chores are done, I find a quiet place to write.
One career or more and keep on doing what is right.

Time to practice my fiddle or see who's on face book.
But that was before Barack Obama and his socialist outlook!

Just when I retired, thought I had it all figured out,
changes came, and what do you think? It all went south!

Now I am back at work, fighting for the American Dream.
Taxes are up, incomes down, things are not what they seem.
