Thursday Think Tank #34 - Last Will and Testament

IMAGE CREDIT:  POETS UNITED - THURSDAY THINK TANK #34

Provided I have left after my man
And seeing as I can no longer stand
I’m taking my dirt nap because I’m dead
Whatever is left shall be equally divided

I have 2 kids - this prose will make them laugh
but seriously though - what exactly is one half?
I would expect it means divided by two
Even and fair like a chocolate fondue

HALF OF THE HOUSE
Take a brand new piece of chalk
Listen closely  – don’t you mock
Now draw a straight line - right down the middle
Teehee teehee – you’re both so fickle!

HALF OF THE COUCH
One would get the cushions
The other would get the frame
I know----I know
You think I’m insane

HALF THE BATHROOM
The bathtub is his -- the vanity is hers
Breaking the mirror is bad luck for years
Splitting the toilet means renting a saw
Why not put your names in the hat for a draw?

HALF THE BED
I suggest one can have the mattress
At least one could have some rest
While the other can have the box spring
And the comfort it won't bring.

HALF THE KITCHEN
This should be easy – as easy as pie
She gets my dishwasher – he’s easy on the eyes
My son – well he can have the comical stove
The one that’s pink and purple and mauve

And last but not least….

GEORGE THE CAT
How would one divide up the family cat?
It would be very rude to cut him in half
Not to mention it would be very gross
If he doesn't shuddup though - it will be Adios.

*******

This concludes my silly poem
It makes no sense - I should probably go home
This Will and Testament is NOT set in stone
And please be advised….the stove can be loaned J
