WOODPECKER REPORT NO. 4

by Jnana Hodson

we have tax-paying status backwards

rather than condoning those who brag
they’ve found another loophole
or avoided paying a full share
we should shame them

status should go to those who pay the most
rather than to those who have the most

status should go to the best public citizens
rather than to those who stiff us

status should go to those who advance the commonwealth
rather than those who raid the treasury

we have tax-paying status backwards
and they get away with it

for now

That’s what Woodpecker said.
