Old age doesn't come alone

Jane walked  up to a man sat on a bench reading a book.

"I couldn't help noticing how contented you look.

What's your secret for a long happy life?"

You obviously draw your old age pension avoiding financial strife."

 

"I smoke like a chimney all through the day,

I drink two bottles of whisky,yes I'm okay.

I catch a bus to the city centre and beg with a Costa cup,

Acccompanied by  my companion a cute little pup."

"That's amazing,"said Jane "Your obviously having fun,

How old are you now?"Next week I'll be thirty one."

Very good Hugh and not far from the truth I suspect.
