Yes I Want Cheese With That Whine

Source

It’s almost that time of year again,

To pay the piper who’s not our friend.


One more month I tell myself,

Put it back upon the shelf.


Do it later I procrastinate,

It can sit there, it can wait.

It can wait just one more week,

Before I have to begin to tweak.

All the numbers, all in rows

Page by page, as I go.


Did we collect enough HST?

Man I hope so or they’ll charge me.


Do we have all the gas receipts?

Materials oh my, they were not cheap.


I promised myself last year at this time,

That I'd keep up the books, now I whine.


Why did I put it off so long again?

To leave it to the very end.


Still have to buy the tax program,

When I do I'll sit and cram.


All the numbers one two three,

Being just a busy little bee.


Balancing numbers as I go,

For the government, I have to show.


My time is precious don’t you know.

They don’t care they run the show.


Taxes are a pain in ass,

I’d really like to take a pass.


Just one year that’s all I ask,

One freebee for all the years of this task.


Don’t forget all the deductions.

It’s easy just follow the instructions.


Procrastination is my name.

Hate filing taxes, feel it’s a shame.


Just want to keep this money that we owe,

But Canada Revenue says no no no.

You pay taxes in Canada too? Just kidding. I was doing my dumb American schtick.

Very cool and clever.....

And I HATE tax time like the plague.

Oh, I almost forgot, I can't read any more of your hubs until your score goes down a little....
