Internal Necrolexicon

Each year brings another box
Deeply bound with glassine locks
Shivers racing up my spine
As I hear my youngest whine
"No mail for me? Poo!"
"Angel, this one's for you."
Greed overcomes her rant
Ripping the tape with nary a pant
Averting my eyes, I hear the scream
Look to see greasy steam
Mayhaps I'm mad as a Hatter
But the box seems a little fatter
Fearfully I open the box wide
Seeing the book nestled inside
Instructions For Sacrifice For You
Edited by Cthulhu
"But I gave last year!!!"
Doesn't matter, have a beer
And think of what to tell the wife
About Angel and her end of life
Terminal Greed, it could work
I never liked the little dork
Messing and whining and carrying on
I'd just as soon have all of em gone
But, I need them this time of year
Standardized Deductions, sign here
Open the cover, start to read
Mind slipping, nose bleeds
Insanity coming as each page turns
Brain fodder for albino worms
Madness and understanding link
I UNDERSTAND IT, I think
I'll have this done in no time
Internal Revenue Tax Code for 99
And then I see Volume Two
Also edited by Cthulhu

Watching modem lights a-blinking
Churning out poetic hash.
Lord, in all Your piety,
Help me keep my sanity:
Please don't let the modem crash! --Alicat

A ROFLMAO for you too Ali!!!

I don't envy those of you who have 'real" taxes to do!!!

Being single, having no kids and owning nothing, mine are easy. The gov't gets EVERYTHING!

BTW- Loved the inclusion of Chtulu!

Thanks guys.  

Christopher:  If is wasn't for one little stock sale that I had to do for extra cash, I could've gone the EZ route as well.  As it were, I had to go with a 1040 and a Schedule D.    Good thing I learned a little about filing from my good old Tax Practitioner Dad.

LMAO

 Did Jesus laugh?
I think He did,
'cause He was once
a little kid;
and all of us
were made with joy
both sugar-spice girl
and snake-snail boy!

LOL...well the house and the kids, and, and...hey I took it to have it done! Though it's a reoccuring nightmare!

 <*\\\><

When you can't make up your mind
Which way is right for you,
Stop and softly ask yourself,
What Would Jesus Do?

And I thought a retired life would mean a simpler tax form! WRONG. Now have extra forms to do. Should I pay taxes on social security. Have to compute the IRA. And your poem reminded me I better start now!!

Hey, Alicat!

Just follow this simple, small instruction....
Make EVERYTHING a tax deduction!
Your dog, your cat, your bird and such,
Your girlfriend if she eats too much,
Those gallons of scotch, rye and gin
You have to drink (they're medicine)
Those Hooter's luncheons (chicken wings)
So you can keep abreast of things,
All the poets on this sight
That keep you writing day and night,
The bugs that chew your shirts and socks,
Plus medicare for your pet rocks...

The IRS will understand...
Just do it from a foreign land!!!!

LMAO!  I pay someone to do 'em ...



--Kess


 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...


--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest

Hehehehe...thanks guys for all the great responses.  

Nan, I'd be very afraid to say that...since I'm an under-30's, single, white male, they would probably leave me being only under-30, single and white.  

Balladeer, loved the little ditty.

PDV...I'm with ya on this one babe..just let me get some sugar and a Big-Ass swizzle stick.
