The Tax Poem

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.!cid_13_1888545635@web184702_mail_ne1_yahoo


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!!!
