of money have to stay Indoors and save on
the money I haven't

my wife, which will never happen now

I think all those years of working and nothing to show for It all, and like American gangster almost feel like saying  "FORGET ABOUT IT"
Retired nothing to show for all those years of hard work I have to ask myself Is life for people like myself just so the
rich can have a nice retirement or am just being nieve
