What Value License and Tax

Once turning 18 on my birthday i booked and took my driving test and thankfully i passed 1st time Because failing comes at a cost of another test followed by more lessons So since that day when i was granted my driving license and deemed legal then to drive and own a car And every day and year since for this privilege i have had to pay road tax, insurance, fuel duty, m.o.t and updating my license Likewise in order to own a t.v on a yearly basis i was forced to buy a t.v license for the privilege And when i got a pet dog for Christmas so to i was forced to get a licence him and myself as an owner as well And when i wished to become an organ donor again i had to apply for a licence The only thing no one ever seemed to need a licence for was the most valid of them all a licence to become a parent or a father So what value of licensing and taxes I passed my driving test got my license and pay all the taxes that entails. And yet i drive on roads so full of potholes my car is more often in the garage than working And though i am forced to pay my t.v license everything is a repeat and has nothing on it to watch And why i have to annually pay to license my pet dog only they can justify but do not feel the need to Or why i need a licence and it is not compulsory to become an organ donor But i suppose the reason for no one needing a licence to have children is Maybe it's because they are indeed the future licenses and tax payers in waiting

There is sweet sweet revenge in this poem Christopher, bet that last verse made you feel good, I didn’t know what to expect but you nailed it, I have a dog myself and I swear if I’m ever asked to produce a license, I’m gonna say what for he doesn’t watch the TV, or drive the car cheers David.
