The FAXman gets all the business after tax day…


You say you missed tax day?

You say you waited too long?

So now you got to run to send a fax,

To the tax man to ask him not to take your sax…


Okay now the fax man does get all the business,

Faxing letters to request extensions,

Explaining to the tax man you are old and on many pensions,

Trying not to have to explain your taxes,

That’s right trying not to have to make to them any mentions…


So send them out a letter of regret,

Fax it now, before you do from them get a threat,

In prison they cannot put you,

But never will you with them get out of debt,

Best to confess now, prior to them requesting an audit,

Never will you ever get a better chance,

Face it, you will never with the IRS receive any plaudits…

The tax man cometh for sure, however his visit is one of immeasurable burden to many. The tax laws that exist are tilted and unfair to the majority of people, there are indeed many breaks and incentives that lay hidden like the holy grail. double and triple taxation on items only add fuel to the war machine that keeps on turning...

Rocket ships burning fuel so fast, up into the black sky so vast, while back on earth burns low...nothing but misery and woe...


PS...I know a lady who is a big fan of yours... :)
