    The Reading

    This afternoon the family gathers together for the reading of your will
    To see whom inherits the most from your untimely death
    You were a victim of murder, but no ordinary murder, whoever did this had tremendous surgical skill
    This sick person cut you to pieces as they watched you take your last breath.

    During your life you achieved great fortune and fame
    Using the dark arts to become famous within your domain
    With your psychic powers you established your name
    Telling the future, telling people what you see, made you a queen within this domain.

    You never married, so no heirs you never had
    But the great dynasty had to be left to some one
    You only being in your forties, what happened to you was very bad
    It meant you died an untimely death, me being a doctor, if I had been there I would have tried to save you by doing everything I could have under the sun.

    Everyone is here now and they are waiting on me
    I join everyone else as we look solemn and sad
    Sitting down now I just can't believe what I see
    What I see I wonder is it a result of the drinks I had.

    A floating white mist taking shape in front of us in this very room
    The shape of a human form you seem to be pointing straight at me
    We can hear a moaning voice trying to talk, the voice is full of gloom
    Pointing to me you say "You killed me for your greed. I will never rest as long as you remain free."

    To me this is the most enjoyable of the poem Nice imagery and quiet spooky-a bit like Poe

    A floating white mist taking shape in front of us in this very room

    We can hear a moaning voice trying to talk, the voice is full of gloom
    Pointing to me you say "You killed me for your greed. I will never rest as long as you remain free
