The Tax Poem

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 taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!

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.

When he screams and hollers,
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then 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..."

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.  Cry

Re: The Tax Poem

When the banks got their bailouts,
I remained silent;
I needed a bank.

When the auto makers got their bailouts,
I remained silent;
I needed an auto.

When entire states got their bailouts,
I did not speak out;
We needed them for export.

When it was time to help myself,
there was no one left to bailout me.

A modern version of First they came…

Good one, Michael! You are so right!

My favorite is George Harrison's "Taxman".

Don't tax you,

Dont tax me,

Tax the man behind the tree!
