We must wear a poppy

November 11, 2015 - 20:03 -- Admin

We must wear a poppy
That is the new way
Of freedom, evidently
Where men and women died
For that lie
And the rich victors
Retain their property
To spread their wealth
Footnoted democracy
And freedom

We join in
To beat them,
The enemy, just like us
Hard working
In God we trust
And our leaders
We are their bleeders
The bled, the maimed
The dead (of our side of course)

A partial foray into tax

November 8, 2015 - 18:06 -- Admin

There is no poetry in tax, you say
Then have you read Part IVA?
Any easy task for tax men like me
But something else to set you free

You cannot avoid it
So it is said
Perhaps, unlike the dead,
It haunts us,
Taunts us, every day

It just will not go away
Grabs us at every pay
Takes our share of spending
Its grasp is never-ending

Once in click on Genevieve’s photo and the bottom of the link gives you the ability to drag the link to one hour and ten minutes when I start. We needed much more than 15 minutes for this interview. Oh well.
