The Retired Bloke

Lose That Frown

My aim in life is to be more mellow

Not angry at the smallest thing

But be a chilled out laid back fellow

Someone to make life go with a swing 


Not angry at the latest bill

Not miffed when cut up in traffic

No need to take a pill to chill

Treat all the same, every demographic


Not angry at the cost of tea

Or speed bumps in the road

Or paying a fortune for a pee

Or getting money back I’m owed


Not angry when I’m late for a date

Not troubled when cars break down

Or when I’m feeling overweight 

I’m trying to smile and lose that frown

    A fine write Retired. I will aim not to be troubled when I'm feeling under weight! doh! Don't matter how much I eat - always the same weight.
    I don't get angry at the price of coffee in cafes. It's too expensive to start with! Don't like coffee much anyway. lol.

    Very good advice, I am always positive as I was given a second chance at life, nothing can really destroy my positive mind.
