Poem : Our inheritance

2 June


Our inheritance

To Alex (and, of course, Jeremy)



A dinner, with friends,
Reminds :
Of what we have,
What we hope,
How we leave
Behind...



We talk of marriage,
Tax-free
Gifts (for IHT) –
Yet ‘bunching’
Our estates,
Blithely !



Do thus we, then, wed ?
To shed
That which we leave
From taxes :
Our residue
When dead ?
