Sitting in a humble bar
Two men, late fifties are talking friendly
Sitting alone in the corner I empty my glass
They are retired salaried men I am sure
I realize the fact immediately in their accents and looks
After leaving their lifelong work, I suppose
They are talking about their bygone days.
I wonder if they got a large amount of retirement pay
Are they getting some pensions?
Across the tables from a distance
I am now looking at myself of tomorrow
On a relaxing Saturday afternoon
While the sun is still shining outside
