Refused to do his income tax
    They tossed him out
    Without a doubt
Suddenly fun perks got the axe

Not wearing anything but her wings.

Trump and Approach Are Superficial
Trump and Approach Are Superficial

Started at beginning and point that is initial,
His approach and appearance are superficial;
Trouble up stirred,
With each word;
Statements Trump made had been prejudicial.

About Priest and His Face Would Ponder

About priest and his face, we did ponder,
And maybe some spell he may be under;
Have heard he can hardly carry a note;
Sounds like someone run over by a boat.

Of your mind, priest tried to...Read More

A Worthy Question?

Our income tax has become outrageous
Our politicians promise umbrageous
Life one step at a time
Then two steps out of rhyme
Is being honest disadvantageous?

Way up north in the town of Churchill

I'm not known for being sentimental,

Now is the hour.
I have to pay my taxes.
But why?
Everything I buy has a tax on it.
Isn't that enough?
What does our government

They waste it for their own pleasure,
leaving us to starve,
or sleep out in the cold.

A question.


For now.
Subject to chain-reaction change.

As long as we're clear
about our lack of restraining rules.

Quite so, dear.

His distinction is
Being destructive, and then
