April 15th - Poem by Robert J. Bartlett

Tonight my taxes, I've set aside;
With my government, I have complied.
Our burden of debt will now beget
A payment of interest, we won't soon forget.

Oh how easy it is, to quite freely spend;
But how difficult indeed, our ways to mend.
Let this be a lesson, for one and all;
Make prudent decisions, lest together we fall!
