'Tis a good time to be retired
from Federal service -
and all the stresses and hassles
now accruing to the accursed 'government employee'.
Very sad how it plays out
and hard on those whose bills are not shut down
while the federal government plays chicken
with their livelihood.
Our final payout has been calculated
and it's a thin amount but we'll manage.
Life has sufficient stresses without work!
