Quatrain-ing Quatrains....
Being retired isn't much fun
there's only one thing I want to do
I want to be able to work again
to get my mind off you

If only I could I tell you I would
take on a project today
you may think it's funny, but I need the money
and to me my work was always play

When all you ever done was work
every since you were just a boy
your work becomes your life and
that work brings you a lot of joy

Here I sit, I'm going to throw a fit
if something don't change and change soon
late last night I just didn't feel right
so I went out and howled at the moon


Too many long empty days
turn into a long lonely night
too tired to even care any more
ready to give up the fight

Hours go by so slowly
each hour seems like a day
no where to go, nothing to do
I have little to nothing to say

Day after day it just gets worse
there isn't much I can do
waiting like a dog for it's master
to get a little time from you

Hopeless dreams are all I have
the future is easy to see
it won't be long and I'll be gone
after all you don't need me...
