IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE - Part XI

IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE : Part XI

If you pull a long face
Not knowing whether it's Night or Day
That may simply mean you lost your face
You have gone past your very Last Day

No use then pulling a long lost face
For all the days you failed to pray
High Up or Deep Down where you surface
Angels or Devils note down crimes to pay

Now if you keep pulling that wraith-long face
Thinking WHO's to know whether your taxes you pay
Remember Arch-Angel Collector of Taxes His Grace
Reads every twitch on faces the mirror-image of DNA 

Yet if you still keep pulling that long face
Hoping you can put off Tax Declaration Day
Dictatorship out there needs no majority in Congress
To impeach even Ultime Unction pardon on dying day

So if you must pull a long long face
Pull it wherever no one dares say
Ill-gotten gains make for national disgrace
Tho' trillions in debt pile up in You-Yes-Yeah
