The Tax Man Cometh

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. 

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.

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 middleclass in the 
world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids. 

What happened?  Can you spell 'politicians' ?

I hope this goes around THE USA at least 100 times!!! 
YOU can help it get there!!!
