Retirement Timing and Rhyming

When should you retire,

she said nosy to inquire?


One thing I know for sure,

don't want to say bonjour.


And next day expire!

I wake up each day, 

without a job in my way,


More time with my wife,

to really enjoy our life,


Is there any more to say?

Left the job 2 years ago.,

Times since then is mighty slow.


Hope to meet some people soon.

@lc3507  Great start, now let's give it  a strong finish.  How about: prefer friend, not a foe?


So the rhyming sequence is AA  BB  A
