A quiet day today, catching up on my sleep.
I'm having a lazy day, no promises to keep.
No school runs to make, no shopping to do.
Won't need a mask, no standing in a queue.
As everything today has been put on hold.
Not worried if the weather is windy or cold
Back burner for this, back burner for that.
No telephone calls to make, too tired to chat.
I hear the traffic outside all angry and mean.
Frustrated, rushed drivers all waiting for green.
But today you won't find me behind the wheel.
I'm retired now, and that's how I'd like to feel!
