Contained herein you will see
A living allowance not spent
Of tears and love and memories
It qualifies as tax exempt.

With ev'ry deduction I take
I consider the tax effect
Charitable gifts I often make
And check twice for math defect.

With but one child allowance
As Head of Household do I claim
But I find low tolerance
In treating taxes as a game.

For taxes paid are taxes earned
In living a positive life
And this much have I learned
It might be easier to be a wife.

The form is now complicated
With schedules of A and B
But yet, good credit am I rated
Because I have paid the fee.

I remember monthly interest
On love's daily savings' plan
And with Med bills I try my best
To make them understand

That my taxes reflect my health
In spirit and mortal space
And today reflects my wealth
With tax exempts on its' face.

With receipts and checks in hand
I calculate that last line
Of a life lived taxingly
And at the bottom will I sign.

When my filing is said and done
And with my last tax form I file
The tax man will surely take
A few choice words and a smile.

Cleverly done, Soleil. Not an easy subject to poetize on. I wish you many happy returns!
