Where There’s a Will

His four daughters called him “Dummy”
And to his back made fun of him.
Ever since he’d lost his hearing
And since his sight had gotten dim,

While to his face they were all kind.
Using names, like “Dear” and “Honey.”
Since each had hopes she’d be the one
To inherit Daddy’s money.

Then his friend, a doctor, told him
Knowing that his end was nearing,
“There is a treatment that I know
Might improve your sight and hearing.”

The treatment was a big success
With his hearing problem righted
His doctor told him, “Well, I guess
Your four girls must be excited.”

“They don’t know about the treatment,
That I can hear the things they say.
I’ve changed my will four times this week
I changed it twice just yesterday!”
