Uncle sam wants you, no he wants your money, tax time again. I always owe.
You might as well feel free,
cause that's all freedom really is.
Better enjoy the thought,
until you get caught.
Get caught breaking a rule,
or the tax man starts to drool.
Free country my eye,
we have to pay out of the butt,
only the rich man gets to strut.
The poor man barely gets a cut,
he's societies slut,
and he really has to watch his butt.
The feeling is nice though,
as long as you know,
you got to pay up,
and control being corrupt.
Don't get caught selfishly scheming,
you might end up in jail dreaming.

|We didn't have to pay taxes, but we are getting a little back (emphasis on the word "LITTLE"); oh, well--not complainin', it's better than nothing! We should be grateful--and we ARE! :)
I hear ya, loud and clear, Gem! Rant on!
