Thoughts come to the mind.
Writing them down just for fun,
gives writers freedom.
Just for fun....
Sorting through life
Unpleasantly surprised by some bookkeeping assistance that didn't itemize what I received back for several hundred dollars, I found myself trying to reconstruct five years' worth of tax returns.
Such a taxing effort (there's a pun there which brings my first smile of the day) is not what any writer would like to spend even the least amount of time doing, and it looks as if the effort will gobble up time better spent writing.
For relief, and to assuage the creative juices which are no less addictive and compelling than other peoples' demons, I settled on this momentary distraction to write something fun and silly.
The Taxpayer's Lament
Thoughts are easier to find than that illusive utilities bill.
I have the thoughts at my neurons ends.
But I'm darned if I can find that illusive bill.
It wouldn't do, your IRS rules to bend.
So into that year's box I dig and scan,
One more frustrated, loyal, citizen man.
Ahhh, there it is. One more nugget found.
Still to search for others I am bound.
If I had not worked so hard, to save some bucks,
I'd write a massive check and go hunting ducks.
I guess that to keep you happy in the end,
I'll stay the course, until I can call you "friend."
