The Madness of Wills.

It’s nipping at my head
Making me wish I was dead.
My body’s attacking me
As well as stress you see

The bastards grind us down
Pushing under, they watch us drown.
All they want is money
All we want is peace.

They want the highest price
They may as well throw a dice
As our throats they slice
Betraying us times twice

Those siblings are a joke
A Will turns family to smoke.
The Executor’s job’s bespoke
He’s on a limb,no help, no hope.

The brother makes Cane and Able
Like best friends round a table.
Causing trouble at every turn
I hope the bastard burns.

    I sympathise. When MIL passed away 2 years ago we weren’t told, and chances are Hubby was cut out of her will anyway.

    Willow, I’m sorry you’re having problems. That last verse is so tight and well written. I can feel the anger.

    Goodness, it’s a gnawing bone grinding horror show when there’s a fallout post demise. I hope you resolve it soon.

      Hubby is getting harassed, threatened and abused by his brother about the sale of MIL’s house. It Awful and not helping my condition. The joys, the joys.

    Sounds like an awful thing to go through. It seems like deaths and wills often bring out the worst in people. Sometimes past grievances and resentments surface. Such a shame! I hope things will all be resolved soon, Willow. πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—
