in the future, your retirement has been prepared for you - congratulations?
Golden Years

Having toiled the keystroke fields for ages,
My statutory fifteen years of effort ends.
I'm ready to receive my reward now :

Slip into that social security blanket,
Plug my head into a cyber-heavenly
Fantasy world of adventures imagined
At no cost to our race's rat runners.

Turn off the lights, tune me in, and Action!
Anesthetic fantasies, dreamed night and day,
Sapping my will and soothing my way
Unto my body's premature decay :

Retired at 34.
