After Taxes - Pet Hate

After taxes, our money's all spent. We can't save for our own retirement. I've got a big axe to grind! Income tax isn't paid by our own president!

You make a good point in this piece. Trump should release his tax returns. He has his "base" but he may get kicked out soon, regardless. Went to a reading in Brooklyn last night. Stood up and read some of my poems. I still write about collectibles and get paid. I entered an Israeli poetry contest. Hope springs eternal. There was one Jewish woman at the reading who is quite attractive but I think she may be "out of my league". Peace & Love Matthew A
