Why Are We Taxed

You started, by trying one,
Smiled, then tried two,
Then you stopped counting,
A habit, like shining shoes,
As long as it's around town,
A normal thing to do.

If they consider it illegal, the only reason,
It's because, no taxes are collected from you,
If they, cared about, your health,
they would, pay your insurance too,
If enough people complain,
It will be highly taxed, and legal to do.

The higher rates, more things taxed,
Our country, gets in worse shape,
It makes you think our leaders,
Are in office, for what they can take,
When there is money to be had,
They will come running, with their rakes.
