Nothing Left But the Laugh

There was a young fellow named Sonny Who went on a date with his Honey. When he looked at the check, He said “Oh, golly heck, The taxman took all of my money”. There was a young fellow named Max Who neglected to pay income tax. The taxman said, “Okay. I will garnish your pay. Now give me your shirt and your slacks”. Miss Muffet was taking her pay In nothing but sweet curds and whey. Taxman the spider Sat down beside her And took all her curds pay away. won 4th place

These are all very funny Joyce. But you won't find me accepting curds and whey instead of pay. Ha-Ha Good luck in the contest, Diane

with out taxes we would'nt have a lot of things. and without a taxman we would have a lot of things cut that they are cutting now parks , education, police. and the poor are the first to get cut. finally the taxman looks a little better.
