When Hamlet Retires (with apologies to W.S.)

To seek income growth, or remain with fixed, That is the question.

Whether 'tis better to suffer The ravages of inflation on fixed , Or to pocket the benefits of income growth And risk a bit of fluctuation?

To grow, to grow - yet to sleep well. And by that income growth to profit Without concern For the thousand natural shocks That the market is heir to.

'Tis the strategy to be followed. Ay, then there's no rub!
