I do not like this practice.
I ask them what the matter is--
they're doing income taxes.
Guess what I've been doing today? Actually, writing this poem is a fun break. But, I did have to do some research for this poem. For the life of me I couldn't think of a word to rhyme with taxes. If you have a better word to rhyme with taxes, please send it along to me. I did learn a new word in my searching--hackmatack, which is a kind of elm tree, or a juniper. It is an Algonquin word. I came across another word that I have seen before, but it isn't in my vocabulary--gimcrack--something of little value, a geegaw. You might say this is a gimcrack poem. What do you think?
Do you pay taxes? What are taxes used for? Can you try writing a poem today about taxes? Have fun writing.
