pomes of buddy don: This Is No Class War

This Is No Class War

To tax investment income just creates
A major disincentive to invest
This honorable principle translates
To rich folks getting richer as they rest!

It's taxing death to tax inheritance
Or so the living heirs loudly complain –
They so deserve their wealth since birthright's chance
Decreed they be bequeathed effortless gain!

In fact the only thing we ought to tax
Is money earned by elbow grease or work –
We can balance our budget on the backs
Of the lowly lucklessly working jerk!

This is no class war – do not think it is –
They must protect what's theirs – not yours or his!
