Common Sense in Verse
Posted by taxguru on October 24, 2011
From F.R. Duplantier’s latest Politickle. I wish I had his skill at coming up with clever rhymes.
NEIN NEIN NEIN
All that’s needed are several swift whacks
From a strict constitutional axe:
To destroy the machine
Built in 1913,
Reestablish the indirect tax.
From the archive:
“I’ll oppose social revolution
And income redistribution,
I will take an ax
To the federal tax
And adhere to our Constitution.”
YOURS, MINE & THE/IRS
Our bureaucracies do us disservice
When they try to coerce and unnerve us;
We must bring to an end
What no one can defend:
The Internal Revenue Service.
TAXING OUR PATIENCE
The flat tax is best, some contend,
But the sales tax has much to commend.
Taxing income or sales
These are minor details
‘Til we limit what Congress can spend!
