Retirement Strategies

I’ve struggled to see,
The sunset of my career,
As anything more than death.

Honored teacher says,
“A righteous man finds his peace,
Only as a hollow corpse.”

My thoughts grow foggy,
Like the wooded path leading
To this idle hermit’s home.

For once in your life,
Be content with well-earned sleep,
And rest on your laurels, fool.
