Funny Retirement Poem

The funny retirement poem below makes fun of the various possible activities that many retirees are involved in. I hope that it makes the retiree in your life laugh.


Now that you’ve retired, are you going to move somewhere warm?
I’ve heard Florida is nice, if you don’t mind their springtime storms.
Of course a move down there will mean you have to forget how to drive.
With all the retirees on the roads, no one makes it out alive.

Now that you’ve retired, are you going to take up shuffleboard?
I’ve heard it’s a popular pastime with most of the retirement hoard.
They also enjoy bocce and the occasional game of rummy.
With the rest of the old folks, you can become quite chummy.

Now that you’ve retired, are you going to eat real early?
It’s a well-known fact, they must eat by four, or a retiree gets surly.
You’ll also have to develop a taste for all-you-can-eat buffets.
And learn to bore everyone you meet with stories of the good old days.

That's what they all say, that everyone retires in florida. Does that mean that florida will be known as the seniors state very soon, or does already hold that title?

If you think about it, who wouldn't want to retire in florida? The climate is nice there so retirees don't have to worry about driving in the snow. They can use their electric mobility scooters year round. They can also relax on the many beaches anytime they wish.

Retirement must be a wonderful time in a persons life. All of a sudden you have all this spare time on your hands. You just need to figure out what to do with it. I think the key is to pursue a bunch of hobbies. Things that you really enjoy doing or always wanted to do except never had the time in the past.

If you retire in florida, you may take up surfing. That's what I would do. I've always wanted to learn how to surf, except there are no waves up here in the north.
