Senior Trip To Fold With Honor

What was brewing? A health care debate done for fooling What bill? Who has the medical skill? Up there on the Hill Are they still talking about the prescription pill? Then the legal eagles read the will Where I am going with this? Noticing people not being able to give a good bye kiss While finishing the two due lists? Shaking opinionated political fists A couple naturally died Rumored siblings lied In the financial plan For the clan Property ownership discussed About what was in the family trust Everything happened real quickly An invisible situation arguably tricky Golden oldies went on a traveling trip Joking about a television show script Upon return There was concern But nobody expected to fill the urns As the lawyer stepped in To tell them what they did win Barring the question “where have you been?” All together To read the statement letter A star Wanting the car And the spouse Wanting representation in the house Furniture which gave the departed glee Grandchildren apartment will benefit if they have a degree This was the thought Before life’s end when they got caught Proceedings started Valuables to be carted Storage bin standing by While tissues passed with a cry Little Jimmy goes to the ice box Looking for grandma’s snacks like a fox But the fridge was bare Nothing to share Except a six pack Planted the night when death attacked “As I open and close this reading During this short meeting There will be no repeating We took most of our stuff with us When boarding the eternal touring bus What is left behind? We hope won’t be declined Since we gave you the birthing start Take our parting gift to heart” Suddenly Little Jimmy appeared Seeing everyone in tears “This is a joke,” His father spoke “Those two left one thing I really hope they enjoyed the final fling” Mommy stated looking at her ring Attorney continued knowing they didn’t care About the sudden scare “Children there is nothing to fear Since we are no longer here For what we want you to remember Christmas last December Gift wrapped in festive tidings Relaxing pleasure was the finding Vacation on a cruise Nothing to lose Off course it was a trick We got sick Now to honor our cause Using your sanitized dirty paws Enjoy what called us to God’s table A Mexican alcohol label Fetch it dear You know the chilled Corona beer” Little Jimmy stood there treat in hand And the youngest took a stand “Any takers from the cheer under the sun Maybe Granny and Gramps wants us to have a little fun. They are up in the sky No longer living a lie Let’s pass this around And drink a round How does that sound?!” Each took a can Toasting as a loving fam No material objects could compare Just a simple tribute to a romantic pair
