There's Little Doubt of the Outcome

There’s Little Doubt of the Outcome

 

By Elton Camp



When fighting one more powerful than you

To succeed there is practically nothing to do

Very soon you’ll be lying flat of your face

Beaten, bruised and in complete disgrace



And that’s the way it is with our Uncle Sam

When his rules & regulations he wants to ram

An agency that delights to tell us what to do

Is called the Department of Internal Revenue



With what it says, we are required to comply

Resistance is futile, so there’s no need to try

On your return you make some innocent mistake

Then they can threaten a complete audit to take



They seem to think we should so plainly see

The need for Schedules they call X, Y and Z

If it’s possible to put things in a complex way

Then that exactly what the IRS is going to say



Unless we pay our income tax before it is due

Next year, every quarter it will come from you

“We see that of taxes you didn’t pay enough.

That your income increased is just too tough.”



Most citizens don’t mind paying their share

But it would be easier with tax laws more fair

That fat cats who are rolling in so much dough

May get by with little, makes us feel it isn’t so
