My Latest, But Not My Last, Will Testament

At or on, around or after my
Decease, destroy all things I leave behind?
I have no wish to be so falsely kind
That charity gets my haul of books & toys,
Crap clothes, nor cash? No family has its claim
On anything of mine, I think? The noise
Of IOU & debt or credit? Try
It, for dishonour's not my middle name!

But, friends & friends of friends & other cronies,
Surrogate sisters, mentors, charges, peers
Can take or have, retain & foster memories
Set forever down our course of years?

If that's not quite sufficient, good or true,
Then, many apologies, but...that's me? Fuck you!

L. A. Barron
