Tuesday Poem: "Rewirement"

My friend Claire says
we’re headed for our best years
when our work will be
cogently argued and
with maturity.
There’s too much still to do.
We can’t retire
with all its connotations of growing
mouldy in an easy chair.
Let us not retire, she says,
so much better to “rewire”.

POET'S NOTE: This poem was inspired by a Facebook conversation that I had with fellow Tuesday Poet, Claire Beynon.
