Tried to Retire

Tried to retire – just wouldn’t fit,

head was in it – butt wouldn’t sit.

Fire not missin’ for the runnin’,

craved the rushin’ – missed the gunnin’.

Hated sittin’ in a hammock,

playing checkers – you can cram it.

Slowin’ down just made me bitch,

saw my muscles jump and twitch.

Takin’ solace in the garden,

feelin’ parts inside me harden.

Livin’ life – you can bet,

standing up – ain’t dead yet!
