Highroads Retiree is a poem about a Highroads worker who retired permanently, passed away and left the job to the younger folk

Highroads Retiree

He worked on the highroads
most all his life
til the day he retired
with his darling wife
all of their children
have grown up and gone
they have no-more babies
for they’ve all now moved on

He now is contented
to fish in the Bay
with his small outboard motor
to pass time away
Jigging and trawling
to him was such fun
there is no punching time clocks
when days work is done

He was a good Father and Husband
and to all a good friend
everyone was heartbroken
to see his life end
he’s now permanently retired
he carried the load
now its up to the young folks
to work the highroad
