I love this witty gem. I'm so glad it was featured on Poetrysoup's opening page. It's tax season again so very relevant. Janece

Great write, Keith. I had images of the tax collector following you to the grave. Congratulations on your first-place win! Please send me a Soup mail with an address where I can send your prize. Best wishes, Carolyn
