Taxed To Live uk

They Take from us , what we work hard to get
they give it to bums , who wont break a sweat
claiming poverty , they don't even try
No wonder this country is running dry
why do we pay , for there drink and there drugs
or women with 10 kids 3 cats and 4 dugs

taxes for that , taxes for this
that guy don't work or have any kids
big old house , real fancy car
he claims benefits cause he slipped in a bar
"i don't even work , I'm in to much pain
I'll just take your money and none of the blame"
cause our government , lets this happen , and thats ok 
we work hard and hand the bums our pay

cause society sucks , and this is for real
the rich get richer and the lowlifes steal
from the middle class, guys like us
were used to it , no need to fuss
so back to work tomorrow we go.....
watch politicians plead poverty , while there bank books grow

i wonder how quick , society would change
if i took over and held the reigns
I'd tax them as much as i could
freeze there wage for as long as it took
get this country off its knees , then let us workers live tax free
maybe thats too harsh , for some of you
but just remember , this is my view.

    So true--- I think in the UK they still have the 'doll' system?? We here in S/Africa, we are still taxed to death.. and as you say, the rich pay for every mistake and laziness of the rest of society here. Welcome to P/Soup
