Tuesday Sept.9th, 2008

Since there is now an election set for Oct. 14th, I thought I would post this poem I found some time ago.

The Tax Poem

(At first I thought this was funny...then I realized the awful truth of it. Be sure to read all the way to the end!)

  • Tax his land,
    tax his bed,

    Tax the table
    at which he's fed.

  • Tax his tractor,
    tax his mule,

    Teach him taxes
    are the rule.

  • Tax his work,
    tax his pay
    He works for peanuts

  • Tax his cow,
    tax his goat,

    Tax his pants,
    Tax his coat.

  • Tax his ties,
    tax his shirt,

    Tax his work,
    tax his dirt.

  • Tax his tobacco,
    tax his drink,

    Tax him if he
    tries to think.

  • Tax his cigars,
    tax his beers,

    If he cries
    tax his tears.

  • Tax his car,
    tax his gas,

    Find other ways
    to tax his ass.

  • Tax all he has
    then let him know

    That you won't be done
    till he has no dough.

  • Tax his coffin,
    tax his grave,

    Tax the sod
    in which he's laid.

  • Put these words
    upon his tomb,

    'Taxes drove me
    to my doom...'

  • And when he's gone,
    do not relax,

    Its time to apply
    the inheritance tax.

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation
was one of the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt, had a large middle-class,
and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the hell happened? Can you spell 'politicians?'

And I still have to 'press 1' for English!?!?!?!?
