Solicitors

Vultures,
meticulously rummaging
at snail's pace
through the decaying carcass
of the old property.

Glorying
in the fleshy fragments
of unwritten agreements,
unsigned letters,
unregistered land
and sitting tenants.

Picking the bones
of wills,
affidavits
and codicils
until nothing
remains

but to
regurgitate the bill,
a noisome hairball
of legalese
and outrageous fees,
whilst the deceased
slumbers on,
mercifully unaware.
