Do It With A Codicil                 [Part 3 of my Legal Trilogy]

 

An original poem by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro

 

Please read along to my Spoken Verse Performance.

 

 

VERSE 1

 

It's a time when mankind is plague stricken.

 

Two hundred thousand dead in just our country.

 

Young people claiming that they aren't chicken.

 

While elders fail to speak their minds, bluntly.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

Granted, nobody wants to rant and rage.

 

But the facts we know present a conundrum.

 

Too quickly writing off persons of your age.

 

So try to wake them up, without a tantrum.

 

I needed an image which said last will and testament, so I made this one.

 

VERSE 3

 

It takes just three trips to a seedy district,

 

For a Fauci tattoo that's multicolored.

 

Hey, that message sure wouldn't be cryptic.

 

Clear to anyone other than a dullard.

 

 

CHORUS

 

It's the way to say that you're serious.

 

Go codicil, go codicil.

 

'Bout stuff that's quite deleterious.

 

Go codicil, go codicil.

 

If wearing masks can't be arranged,

 

Just give your will a minor change.

 

Go on!

 

Do it with a codicil.

 

 

BRIDGE

 

So you promised endless possibilities,

 

Without defining responsibilities.

 

Now your kids "wanna do what they wanna do",      [Jared Kushner, Sept. 15, 2020]

 

Living their lives with no fear of the flu.

 

Get them to think in terms: fiduciary.

 

Through a brief change of beneficiary.

 

Maybe to a favorite health foundation.

 

But do insert one stipulation:

 

To clarify it's all about the hygiene,

 

Make it void, soon after taking the vaccine.

 

I can promise that will force them to wake up.

 

While providing a path for the make up.

 

A codicil will convey your sentiment,

 

But not alter your last will and testament.

 

 

VERSE 4

 

When making kids smart is a priority,

 

Unintended consequences one could find.

 

Those who taught kids to question authority,

 

Could be challenged as to their soundness of mind.

 

 

VERSE 5

 

So Grams, while you've been holed up since April,

 

A few social media posts were not nice.

 

Asking that, to keep the stock market stable,

 

Might the greatest generation sacrifice?

 

 

VERSE 6

 

Dan Patrick's the pied piper who played that song.

 

The one from Texas, not the favorite of men's.

 

Simply put: While our feelings toward death are strong,

 

It should be viewed through the "Greater Good" lens.

 

 

VERSE 7

 

But you're not swayed by folks who hold state offices.

 

Some are known to say whatever one pleases.

 

You've heard it said, that in White House caucuses,

 

They flee in fear whenever someone sneezes.

 

 

CHORUS

 

It's the way to say that you're serious.

 

Go codicil, go codicil.

 

'Bout stuff that's quite deleterious.

 

Go codicil, go codicil.

 

If wearing masks can't be arranged,

 

Just give your will a minor change.

 

Go on!

 

Do it with a codicil.

 

 

VERSE 8

 

Hey, as your sweet progeny seek out your love,

 

Don't give them reason to think that you're ancient.

 

Yeah, there are things you shouldn't speak to them of,

 

Such as tending to your pre-need arrangement.

 

 

VERSE 9

 

Because, they'll think you've got one foot in the grave,

 

When you talk about caskets and head stones.

 

You won't need to measure a flat brain wave, no.

 

Just admit you aren't swayed by stuff like pheromones.

 

 

CHORUS

 

It's the way to say that you're serious.

 

Go codicil, go codicil.

 

'Bout stuff that's quite deleterious.

 

Go codicil, go codicil.

 

If wearing masks can't be arranged,

 

Just give your will a minor change.

 

Go on!

 

Do it with a codicil.

 

 

The End
