Or say you are the feeling type
regularly taking soundings of your heart
following the path that unfolds before
a Cancer after grace
and the aunt you’ve nursed for years
has died with you the only living heir
and her property substantial,
but when you’re emptying her desk
you find a hasty will she drafted at the
leaving you her cherished tchotchkes
but her house and assets to a T.V.
How could she disinherit you?
She certainly was unsound, deluded,
And the question rises like
who knows about this will
besides that postman who had witnessed
Is the danger losing your way or your
Do you help the will over to the
and watch this shock disappear to ash?
You never turned your back on her.
You cleaned the house, tended her
did the taxes on the assets now intended
for a stranger in a pompadour and slick
How unfair this is; you believed it was
Or do you keep faith with her wishes?
