THE SKIN FLINT (Additans)

There were a man who had SO much money
Horded ALL his money - GAVE none of it
AWAY!
So he intended to take all it ALL with him!
In his will had it written in
That ALL of his money in notes be put in his coffin
That were to be cremated with him
His family were most distrort
He loved appreciated money his family not at all!
As for frends he bought and sold 'em down the river
That souted 'im!

The solicitor being a wise old bird smilde
' Hears a cheque for all his money '
' just put that inside pocket ' ' close too his hart '
The family were most happy to carry out
The old skin flints last wishes!
He were a Skin Flint Till The Day He died!

What a peculiar character! I can well imagine the family's shock, but if that's what the old scrooge wanted done with his money, shouldn't his will be respected? :) Still, we all feel the same, I think, when it comes to needed resources being wasted. The urge is definitely understandable. Those are the thoughts that came for me when reading this. An amusing, quirky one...
