Time goes by, old age arrives
And folk who have led busy live
Working hard for many a day
Know now is the time to play.
A tranquil life, from worries free
Contented in the family,
But all’s not always as it seems
Many will have shattered dreams.
Perhaps a kinsman may be rough
To one who is no longer tough,
Or danger lurks when one goes out
In fear of mugging by some lout.
Be careful where you stow your cash,
It can be lifted in a flash
‘Gainst strangers you must close your door
Or be sorry evermore
If people help you in the house
And you miss things, ‘tis not a mouse
Sadly, watchful we must be,
We can be duped so easily.
And if, one day your phone will ring
With promises of reward to bring,
Take no notice, put it down,
For sure the Fraudsters are in town.
And if, despite all, trouble comes
And you think that something hums,
Just be brave and make a stand,
Help for you is close at hand.
Now give Marjorie a tinkle,
She’ll respond within a twinkle.
She will listen to your woes
