Tax Poem

Again, just something I came across.

 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 hi s tears.

 Tax his car,
 Tax his gas,

 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 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,
 It's time to apply
 The inheritance tax.

 Accounts Receivable Tax
 Building Permit Tax
 CDL license Tax

 Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.
 We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world.
 Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
 What in the hell happened? Can you spell 'politicians!'
