Income Tax Time Again

by Willa Jones

Working on it,
Till my eyes wore out
And my tail bone, too.
I don't organize as well
as I used to do.

It seems as though
The powers that be
Could give us an age limit.
I suggest, eighty three.

That many years
Should be long enough
To wrestle with forms
And all that tax stuff.

If we all had incomes
Of a million or two,
Lawyers could find loopholes
For us to jump through.

But we, the aging Middle Class,
Carefully keep all "Important Tax
Information Mail."
For fear of missing something
And be threatened with jail.

Or at least an audit
Yuck, it's income tax time.
