'It's time to complete your tax return...
It’s time to calculate what you earn
It’s time to tick in those boxes and read
those simple questions that shouldn’t mislead
but make you feel that you’re ever so dim,
and your eyes glaze over, and start to skim,
the meaning is lost, and your mind goes blank
and you wonder if this will soon empty the bank …'
“Earn a bit less –
less stress, distress?
get busy (not lazy)
without any pay (no way?)
or take flight abroad
to a haven to hoard
your coveted booty – until you get bored?
and to taxes and forms return
– or take on a job with ‘PayAsYouEarn’
with accountants to help with those figures and forms?”
Wrap a towel, cool your brain,
take it steadily, no strain,
step-by-step, ’til, there you are
the end-of-the-tunnel for another year.
