Rumor mill and
jungle drum, the word has gone around,
Confirmed by Service Gazette, conversations growing loud,
J.C.'s called it a day!
Two score and
seven years, of service exemplary they say,
A mountain of superannuation, to account for his final pay,
keep J.C. on his way!
have prepared, medals and insignia on a board,
To mark a momentous decision, a gentleman falling on his sword,
for J.C.s lounge room wall!
Old mates for
gone-by-years, men from a long broken mould,
Tales of friendship 'n' loyalty, maybe some better left untold,
for J.C's reminisces!
For his wife
and two tin lids, words of praise he has told,
For when duty made her call, a family has to bear the load,
for J.C. to repay!
Command controls, lawn bowls and cardigans beckon,
To graze in retirement's pasture, so I think it's safe to reckon,
J.C. now has joined.
