A Grim Ledger 

Wading through a deadman’s statements,
The mundane mixed with avaricious deceit,
Contrived claims highlighted by the obvious,
Familiar numbers, and names.

Shadows creep beneath fading ink,
Indited symbols uncovering pieces of the past,
Shattered like glass under truth’s heavy weight,
The upset of a legacy’s taint.

Leave your thought.
