Taxes, Taxes, And Taxes, Oh My! - Poem by Joe Rosochacki

The politicians have the talent for taking our money.
Talents was money, but these talents are not funny
- but phony.
You might say 'What the heck? '
Here's proof that some politicians are a few cards short of a full deck.

It's a kind of rip-off that was discovered by fifty cent(s) ,
It doesn't make sense,
Anyone who purchases a deck of cards in the state of Alabama must pay a 'card tax' of 10 cents.
However, you can purchase a deck with a couple of jokers in it,
Alabama tough s@#t!
Yes, really!
Law claims that the tax must be levied on the purchase of any deck containing
'no more than 54 cards' so if you are lucky enough to find a deck with 55 cards,
- you're home free!

In Utah, the Mormons, have majority of the power,
This is not Joseph Smith's finest hour.
Any businesses where 'nude or partially nude individuals perform any service' have to pay a 10% sales and use tax. 'Just the facts ma'am, just the facts.'
This applies to all both moron and wise
This tax is applied to all revenue from admission fees
For a striptease
as well a merchandise,
food, drink and 'services' sales.
And ales.

UVA's and UVB's to turn on your melanin in your body,
Inside a semi-sarcophagus
with special bulbs for 'glowing' look that was your body is to be.
You will have to pay an excise tax according to the
-controversial Patient Protections and Affordable Care Act of 2010,
These kind of taxes were revolutions begin.
Skin cancer is related the overexposure to the sun ray,
People should get this idea later on when cancer eats their skin away.

Kentucky put a tax on certain confectionary candy the you might buy.
Reese's Peanut Butter Cup is candy but a Milky Way is not, begs the question why?
If a breakfast bar contains no flour, then it is considered candy, I could only guess
Willy Wonka might be out business,
Isn't raising taxes handy?

The crash tax, in New York City, it's not crash dummies for safety sake,
It's more money to make,
The $500 fine is for those who get into an accident,
I don't know if there would be precedent,
More of your money is what city government wants to take.

There is ghoulish tax on haunted houses that have music in them,
Forget The Addams Family or The Munster themes or the Monster Mash,
Forget the eerie music behind Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi,
-the monster movie's 'creme de la creme',
Yet NYC doesn't charge this tax for Phantom.

Whole bagel or not whole bagel that is the question?
If you have whole and take it home you, to your domicile destination,
You get tax free
But if you have cut at the bagel shop you are taxed a kind duty fee,
It's like going to a bagel station.

There is saying that two truths of life are taxes and death,
Now in Seattle they go hand in hand when you take last breath.
If you don't a fifty dollar fine when you expire,
You get county's official to bury you,
What about cremation, that would add fuel to the fire?
Taxes and death, oh so true.

Big pharma is going to be taxed by the Fed,
You know 'trickle down' all the way to the bottom, if you read,
here we are found
Big pharma is just going pass it to us or insurance companies around.
You'll be taxed for medication until you land up dead.
