“Tax Everything”, said the Politician

Published January 27, 2020 by tindertender

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.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

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

We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the heck happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’

  • What happened. The higher intellect developed and discovered more ways to milk society. Politicians do the bidding and more, allowing every parasite we have to jump on the band wagon and contribute to why we pay more for nothing. I like billions have had enough. The time for change is upon us and left us no choice but to fight for the life we intended and had envisioned… Thanks for the poem that states our insane reality.
