YOU CAN TAKE THE BAT OUT OF THE COUNTRY, BUT…

I enjoy sitting on my dock

Fishing, sipping a fresh cup of coffee

Listening to the loons and watching the muskrats do their thing.

And no, I don’t miss work in any way at all.

The hustle and hurry of it all

Is no longer of any concern for me.

You see, I’m tired.

I have no appetite for it any more.

I’ve turned the page into a new chapter.

I munch on my meals of high fiber content

I enjoy them with a glass of Metamucil

And a good quality multi-vitamin.

Naps and fishing and reading good books

Maybe a ballgame on TV

Fill my days now.

(phone ringing incessantly)

What’s that you say?

The Penguin has escaped his nursing home?

TO THE BATPOLE, ROBIN!!!
