Poem a Day Challenge #21 (Taxing)


By Scott Bailey © 2013

They didn’t know.
Or didn’t care.
That corporate giants
Weren’t paying their share.

If they didn’t know.
Incompetence screams.
If they didn’t care
Corruption streams.

Next month. Something else.
To make us all forget.
How many times do we take this?
Is their more give in us yet?
