“A cappuccino would be nice
and thanks you Anne dear friend,
Since Bert has died I felt quite lost
but time has helped things mend.
I guess what hurt the most dear Anne
was finding in Bert’s will,
To me he never left a thing,
a truly bitter pill.
“He never left you anything!
I thought Bert more sincere.
But is that diamond ring not new
you’re wearing sister dear?”
“Well let me put it this way Anne
Bert’s will did leave a bit.
Five grand for a memorial stone
and this dear Anne … is it!
The outcome of wills these days are as uncertain as the outcome of many marriages, though, some women seem to adjust adequately.
