65+

I call my dad
He sounds depressed
He says he had to fill in a form the other day
And tick the
65+ box
Like,
That’s his age bracket now
65
To
Just …
Death
He says he gets a state pension too now
£150 a week
I say I’ve seen a Barbour jacket that I want
It’s £150, incidentally
Can you buy it for me, dad?
He sighs
‘Yes’
He sounds
Even
More
Depressed
Now
