Tax Dodging

When tax is due make sure that you pay 
Scarface didn't and got put away
For the feds they got wise
Took Capone by surprise
Alcatraz he went for a long stay.

So the moral of this limerick rhyme
Tax dodging is a serious crime
If you love prison life
And you wont miss your wife
Be prepared you'll go down for some time .

What a great poem! The government doesn't like competition is why Capone went away, but if you are an average Joe pay your taxes, if you wish to dodge them become a politician!!! LOL and congrats , well deserved, love these kinda poems

You have a talent for limericks, my friend, and I will probably end up in Alcatraz. LOL Some of the competition in the contest was incredible. Congratulations on a second-place win in my contest. Have a wonderful New Year! Best wishes, Carolyn

Truly enjoyed this double Limerick, Tom. In my country, we say that prison is for the poor and the unlucky. The wealthy usually manage to get away with just by paying a fine! Regards & Happy New Year. // paul

Thanks Paul, you're right, the very rich have a knack of wriggling away from justice, money certainly talks for some. Happy new year. Tom.

- The tax is high in Norway .... and in Norwegian prisons you can choose between three different dinners every day ... or you can receive food from Mc. Donald :) - I don't have the money to buy dinner at Mc. Donald every day .... but, you're right ... I will miss my husband :))) - Best wishes for the new year, my friend Tom :) - hugs // Anne-Lise :)

Thanks Sunshine, prison sounds good in Norway. In the UK they want to give all prisoners a phone. Thought prison was supposed to be a deterrant. Hope you have a wonderful 2019. Tom.

Yep, you can’t beat the tax man. Happy New Year Tom.

Both are most witty, clever and grin creators. I really like the use of Alcatraz and Capone. All the best to you in the contest and all else ... CayCay

Trump has been a really beauty; Draft dodging has been his duty; A real pest; Women molest; Cake that is a real tooty fruity.
