The Dear Departed

THE DEAR DEPARTED

His mother one day
Handed in her jewellery
At the manager’s office
And stopped eating
Unspoken words
Were presumably
Enough is enough

  1. Good words nicely arranged. Piquant.

  2. This one will stick with me. Not knowing the circumstances I can’t help but admire her strength of will. But terribly sad for you and others.
