MassGOP Research Briefing

In Case You Missed It!
Republican Leader Senator Richard Tisei
reads an Ode to Massachusetts Taxpayers

As delivered during the FY10 budget debate by Senator Richard Tisei (R-Wakefield):

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries,
Then tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax, tax, tax, tax.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers,
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

Put words upon his tomb,
"Taxs drove me to my doom..."

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
It's time to apply
The inheritance tax.
