#87 - Parsimonious Steve

Steve bequeaths his children a single pea.
The rest of his grand estate -
peacocks, gilt-edged rollercoaster,
gem-studded key to the underworld, etc -
is to be buried with him, at sea.

They guessed as much. The youngest, Tess,
makes fists so hard her knuckles pop,
and so, to spite him, brings him back to life.
