The Truth About Government - Poem by (brief renderings) Joe Fazio

To the poor the government renders shelter
and food. To the sick, doctors of medicine
and hospital care and to the children of
this nation...education.

I do not thank the government. For in order
to give to us, they have taken from my
brothers and sisters. Thank you brother.
Thank you sister. It is you...not the
government that has come to our aid.

If the truth be told, the state has nothing
to give us...but for that which they tax...
taken from others.
