Government Bailout Today, Tax Poem Tomorrow

The Tax Poem
Tax his land,Tax his bed,Tax the table At which he's fed.
Tax his tractor,Tax his mule,Teach him taxesAre the rule.
Tax his work,Tax his pay,He works for peanutsAnyway!
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 heTries to think.
Tax his cigars,Tax his beers,If he criesTax his tears.
Tax his car,Tax his gas,Find other waysTo tax his ass.
Tax all he hasThen let him knowThat you won't be doneTill he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers;Then tax him some more, Tax him tillHe's good and sore.
Then tax his coffin,Tax his grave,Tax the sod inWhich he's laid.
Put these wordsUpon his tomb,'Taxes drove meto my doom…'
When he's gone,Do not relax,Its time to apply The inheritance tax.
