I am re blogging a post from my friend professor Gerry Beyer a law professor at Texas Tech School of Law in which he reproduces a poem written in lament of the estate planning mess wrought by Prince’s inaction in making appropriate plans for his demise. Be warned, large or small estate, you really need a will and at the very least a health care directive. Trusting in the Lord is good for the soul but it can be murder on the health and well being of family.

There once was a popstar named Prince.
He died and we’ve looked ever since
For a will to instruct us how
To divide this massive cash cow.
People looked high, people looked low.
Was there a will? Answer still no.
His sister rushed into the breach
And sought immediate relief.
She asked not for power or money,
But for a familiar trustee
To protect the diamonds and pearls
Until the true facts are unfurled.
So tabloids let’s NOT go crazy
As journalism, that’s lazy.
Go search for lost kids if you must
Or better a will under dust.
