The poem is below.


The will is being read at a pace that would make Ghandi stand up and say 
 enough. Regardless of the stale air in the room the greedy family members
 fan themselves and wait for the final verdict of who gets the house. "My home
 is bequeathed to the organization "save the seals" to be liquified and used 
 at their descretion. The old lawyer pushes his glasses a little further up then adds,
 "last by not least the mattress along with the old bible I bequeath to my nephew 
 Reginald." Reggie wipes away a tear and ducks from the cold stares of his greedy
 family who never bothered to visit grandma. When she had her trombosis surgery 
 it was he who spend the weekend making her chicken soup and reading her articles
 from the local paper. Now that she was gone, he intended to honor her wishes. 
 So as soon as weather permitted he mounted the old mattress in the back of his 
 pick up truck and took it home with him, alongside the bible. 

To be continued...

    Greed is so unappealing, and your fantastic words are sooo descriptive. I can't wait to read the next part to find out what is discovered in the 'mattress' and/or 'bible'. A sunday reading your wonderful stories is most intriguing and fun :-) thank you. lynxxx enjoy a wonderful week.

    Great read, but Mystic, you simply can't do this to your reader! You know very well what question hangs on every lip . . . what did he find in the old mattress or the bible? OK, I confess, I'm hooked, and I'll try to be patient :) Amitiés
