Jesus Christ Taught Us to Pay Our Taxes
During the two thousand eight preseason,
I was asked who will start at quarterback.
I said, “Render to Lovie the things that
are Lovie’s, to God the things that are God’s.”
Tax time is the most tedious time of
The year. With the tax people working, and
The IRS lurking it’s hard to cheer,
It’s the most tedious time of the year.
There’s a deadline for filing, not much time
For smiling and wistfully watching the
Snow. There’ll be scary tax stories, tales of
the glories of deadlines met long ago.
There’ll be no double filing and may-
Be some smiling when the deadline is here.
