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
.
