Retirement Plan

want money for your retirement
buy a car park
we disapproved but paid anyway
got into the cinema
too early
had to sit through the adverts
noticed people watching them
why would they do that
they’ve come to see a film
then they go home
and watch more adverts
why would they do that
because they accrue wasted time
like it’s part of the policy
like it gains interest
like years from now they’ll share a smirk
with the other retirees
a je ne regrette rien sort of smirk
