One over 60's perspective on the Intergenerational Report...

This is a poem sent in today by Val about an over 60s take on the Intergenerational Report… 

My years are totting up
So quickly as the years roll around
But I’m glad I am the age I am
Or work for me would be found

I read that Bunnings employ
Staff if they’re  fifty plus
But Hockey’s raised the bar

And now seventy is a ‘must’
So will there be more like Bunnings
To show a welcome to the aged
As the Federal Government insists
Ad. Article continues below.
Older ones can earn a wage
Who’ll cast aside their walking frames
And shine up their spectacles
And cancel their bingo membership
Ad. Article continues below.
(Lots of things will be overhauled)
And practice smiling again
If that smile’s turned to a glower
And realise time’s meaningful
Ad. Article continues below.
Now work ‘s part of those hours
But I need’nt worry
About that  missive in the mail
Telling me to rally
Ad. Article continues below.
Causing me to quail
‘Cos yippee I’m well past that
And I can still draw that stipend
And know that I’ll receive it
Ad. Article continues below.
Right up to the very end
