YOUR PAYMENT WOULD BE ABOUT $$
(8/15/19)


“your
Social Security
statement”

is quite
depressing

the projected
monthly amount
seems
a tad deficient

not much
more
than a
two week
paycheck

this
is what
I worked
so long
for?

60+ hours
a week
the last 20+
years

contributing
to the system
for decades?

now nearing
the end
of my working
career

with the
prospect
of living on
a budget
from the
beginning

the retirement
that I apparently
deserve

a garage
apartment
in my
future

as was
in
my past

all that
I really
wanted
in the first
place
