“State pension age could rise to 68 sooner than planned…”
My part of town is poor. It’s not surprising
That life expectancy’s not very high.
If pension age is set to keep on rising,
I’ll have to keep on working once I die.
I’ve always had a hankering to tread
The hallowed boards, so I would be euphoric
If someone from the Globe would boil my head,
And cast me in the graveyard scene as Yorick.
