I got your taxes

Our congress just loves to lament,
about waste when taxes are spent,
but say it ain't healthy 
to tax raise the wealthy
so they tax those that can't pay rent.
 
Roads and the schools need maintaining,
from taxes I'm not abstaining,
while the poor live on beans
its the ones with the means
that are doing the complaining.

I choose a career that won't pass,
just anywhere near upper class,
but I'll make my dollar 
with sweaty blue collar
The wealthy can all kiss my ass.

    They are experts at kissing ass. They've been kissing Saudi ass for years. Poor some oil on your ass and 3/4 of Congress will show up to have a kissing contest. Vince

    Glad to see you made the change for the contest. In case you got mixed up, it's Carolyn's contest, as you probably knew anyway. Oh, and I know by looks maybe only half the flowers I discussed in my poem. I just do fast research. haha. Thanks for your note. LUv, Andrea

    Very entertaining trio of limericks. The last line in the third installment should be etched in marble.
