The Tax Poem
by Author Unknown

Tax his land, tax his wage,
Tax his bed in which he lays.

Tax his tractor, tax his mule,
Teach him taxes is the rule.

Tax his cow, tax his goat,
Tax his pants, tax his coat.

Tax his ties, tax his shirts,
Tax his work, tax his dirt.

Tax his chew, tax his smoke,
Teach him taxes are no joke.

Tax his car, tax his grass,
Tax the roads he must pass.

Tax his food, tax his drink,
Tax him if he tries to think.

Tax his sodas, tax his beers,
If he cries, tax his tears.

Tax his bills, tax his gas,
Tax his notes, tax his cash.

Tax him good and let him know
That after taxes, he has no dough.

If he hollers, tax him more,
Tax him 'til he's good and sore.

Tax his coffin, tax his grave,
Tax the sod in which he lays.

Put these words upon his tomb,
"Taxes drove me to my doom!"

And when he's gone, we won't relax,
It's time to pay the inheritance tax.


Please pray for Richie.

Why this forum was appreciated for so many years:

2002 - 2010: Huge presence of homeschool parents here. We shared news stories and other information. Compiled curriculum lists (scroll down for homeschool resources).

2010 - 2011: Away, offline, fighting a difficult health battle. Prayers here were much appreciated!

2011 - 2013: Mostly offline, for medical and other reasons.

2013 - 2016: Cancer Warriors ping list (scroll down for more information). And prayer threads!

2017 - 2018: Offline again, due to work schedule (and no working computer).

2018: Returned, in support of Kavanaugh. Thank you for a place to vent.

2019: Well... now sometimes a certain element, sad to say, dominates some threads here. Still hanging around, though, especially for Covington Catholic news and the PRAYER threads.

2020: The COVID-19 Pandemic... Hoping and praying for an end to this virus.

Rest in peace, our friends who have passed on.

Please Note

Now and then, I write a post too quickly - and maybe not clearly enough. At least one of my posts was taken out of context and posted in a negative light on another website. If any one of my posts sounds offensive in some way, just ask me about it. I'd be happy to clarify further.
