Oh My God, my taxes are due
I'm beside myself, what to do?
I thought I had prepared all year
Now, the time is looming near

I failed to take enough deductions
Now I'm left needing resurrection
If I don't product the funds I need
My life is over, I'll surely bleed

I sweat and worry until I post
That final stap to envelope
Whew! There is goes, it's in the mail
My coffin receives it's final nail

I work, I toil, and it leaves me drained
Until the days roll 'round again
Next year, I have the master plan
The one thing to reassure i'll stand

I'll just claim zero everywhere
That will insure my life be spared
And overtime is nothing to be desired
40 hours a week is all I require

I'm peaceful now, the deed is done
I'm ready for another sun
To work I go, and hope that now
The IRS is please somehow!

That's cute and sadly, true sometimes.  I re-
member when I was a realestate agent, sitting up 4am doing taxes on April 14th some years!  This year did them early, but had to pay so sent it in later.

If there was a way not to pay them, I'd do it....
