Times are hard!

byUncle Pervey©

Times are hard, as we all know,
And things ain't gettin' better.
Its getting harder every day,
To be a real go-getter!
If you're lucky, and make money,
Don't feel happy yet.
Cause Uncle Sam, and all the others,
Will get what they can get!
Income tax is number one,
Of that you can believe!
But don't forget State Sales Tax friends,
There isn't no reprieve!
There's a tax called 'lux-u-ree',
If you're real unlucky.
City tax and county tax,
And it gets more yucky!
For if you choose to not have kids,
Its plain for you to see.
You know they'll punish you some more,
A school-tax there will be!
Cause though, you've paid and paid, and paid,
And still you pay some more,
When you think they're thru with you,
They're knockin' at your door!
So finally when you're all Taxed out,
And when you're feeling broke.
And when there's nothing left to grab,
Their hand's still in your poke!!
