<h1>BEASTLY TALES</h1>

<h1>A MOTHERS WHIM</h1>

<center>

***Agnes Abnegate, a widow, had two sons,
One was successful, with a wife that stuns,
Children and an important career,
The other, Alf, lived with his mother, in the rear.
Often sparring with his successful brother, dear.***


***One day Agnes thought, “I’d better get my affairs in order,”
“One never knows when one might cross the border,”
“Into any after-life that may be waiting,”
“Possibly it may not be so scintillating.”
“I must make a will, be true and fair,”
“My sons can’t be left without such care.”
“To my older one, the successful one, I’ll leave the family house,”
“To Alf, the younger, who doesn’t have much nous!”
“I’ll bequeath a sum of one million dollars,”
“Maybe that will inspire him to wash his collars!”***


***“But that’s most unfair,” Alf did snivel and whine,
“The house is brick and tile, incredibly fine,”
“And you don’t have a million dollars, in any case.”
“This dumb arrangement is a real disgrace!”
“But I’ll be giving you a lottery ticket,”
“A genuine one, not a sticky wicket.”
“The prize is a cool, one million quid.”
“I carefully checked all the facts, I did.”
Said Alf, “So where is this ticket for to win,”
“I want to see it, your argument to underpin.”
Agnes, usually never one to bet,
Said, “But I haven’t bought it yet!”***


***Needless to say, Alf wasn’t having a bar of it.
His brother getting the house; he a useless chit.
He would take the matter up again with his mother.
Laying down his position to his older brother.
Then he heard a hammer knocking in a post,
Through the window he saw what he feared most.
His older brother, knocking in a “For Sale” sign.
He couldn’t imagine just how precipitous and malign,
This action was, with them still both living with-in.
Certainly not a fair way to treat one’s kin.
Agnes said, “Your brother has asked me to live with him.”
“I know you to be not so bright, awfully dim.”
“But now I must ask you to excuse me for a while,”
“I must go and buy a lottery ticket to beguile,”
“You must now have your inheritance,”
“Regard the million dollars as only an advance,”
“You’ll also get a tea set of egg-shell blue,”
“I trust that all of this will satisfy you!”***

What was Alf complaining about? After all he was getting a million dollars, it seems fair enough to me.😉😂
