Tax The Love - Poem by Dr Hitesh Sheth

Oh Politicians!
you are now thinking to levy “Flush Tax”,
In future, you may tax even our earwax…

Instead,
Tax those, who fall in love
Tax those, who fall out of love
Tax those, who search for love
Tax those, who crave for love
Tax those, who love to love
Tax those, who hate to love
Tax those, who glorify the love
Tax those, who vilify the love
Tax those, who read about love
Tax those, who write about love
Tax those, who comment about love

And your coffers will be
overflowed with dough
In a one go...

For,
It is not the elusive dark matter that keeps
universe falling apart,
But the mysterious love that
stays in every human’s heart.

So,
Tax the love
fill your trove.

PS: I read in a news paper that politicians are planning to levy a flush tax. More you flush, more you pay the tax. So this poem took birth in my mind. You can find this news on a following link.

    The tax of love is cost tax. 愛の税金は収入税や経費課税だと想います。 (Report)Reply

    Anticlimax and paradoxical …! !
    And 1 thing I add, tax on every utterance and write on every word and every word imagined … love in any form … will come under the menu of your poem

    Then Poets will be insolvent as they make use of emotion and word in add lib …and fate of PH will be….?

    wow, what an interesting and quite amusing poem! hope u don't take any offense but i couldn't keep myself from laughing. it's just one of those poems that lighten up one's not so bright day with a humor that probably wasn't intended. but anywho, loved it...very enjoyable

    Yes, wonder how they never thought of taxing love! Maybe because they don't know it exists? (Report)Reply

    Very lovely poem I like it a lot it reminds me of my poem 'To: Jill H-9-F-9-O-7-68 October 18,2012' It speaks about how soon they'll be taxing us for the air we breathe and the blood we bleed. I love this poem no matter if we pay for love as humans we'll fall for it thanks and remember. Spread Yourself! ! ! ! (Report)Reply
