The Lyrics

In a conference room meeting,
We all gave our greeting,
I asked them to stay for awhile.
They looked at my folder,
My strategy bolder,
I gave them a nod with a smile.

When my discourse was ended,
Tax issues defended,
And their options were more than a few.
They wanted an answer,
A fortune enhancer,
Estate planning drafting to match what is new.

Their quest for redemption,
Concern for exemption,
Estate preservation their goals.
Community interest,
A pension that will vest,
An I-R-A strapped to their souls.

They finally were willing,
Concern took top billing,
As tax nightmares danced in their heads.
Their fortune was daunting,
My caution was haunting,
I gave my advice and I said:

You picked a fine time to draft your new will,
Choices you can make while you’re alive still.
You’ve got deductions, lots of instructions,
For trusts with a clause that will thrill,
You picked a fine time to draft your new will.

They looked at each other,
And said “Draft another!
To implement what we have planned.
We’ll take our elections,
As close to perfection,
Creating a strategy grand.”

They thanked me for showing,
The best way for going,
To pass on their wealth to their heirs,
And as they were leaving,
My thoughts then were weaving,
I’ll draft soon with passion and care:

You picked a fine time to draft your new will,
Choices you can make while you’re alive still.
You’ve got deductions, lots of instructions,
For trusts with a clause that will thrill,
You picked a fine time to draft your new will.
