Veteran of a Million Tax Form Wars

In honor of Tax season coming up I submit this
When you take a break from filling out your tax form you can read through this
It is a story that while a personís life on the outside might look all rosy and sweet
The inside is rotten to the core

I just ask that the people from Blue Oyster Cult forgive me


VETERAN OF A MILLION
TAX FORM WARS

You see me now a veteran
of a million tax form wars
Iíve been living on the edge so long
Where tax forms fill my cubicle
Numbers plague my brain and
keep me from my sleep
I am far too old to see
All the scars are on the inside
Iím not sure that thereís anything left of me
Donít let these forms go on

Itís time we had a break from them
Itís time we had some leave
Iíve been living in this mess so long
It gets bigger and bigger everyday
Oh, please donít let these forms go on

You ask me why I am weary,
why I say these things to you
You say 45 has enacted Tax Reform for you and me
I do not want you to fall for that lunacy
The wars are still going on dear
And thereís no end that I know
The auditor will always
recalculate your form
This wretched insanity will foreverÖ
Öwill forever be the norm
Donít let these forms go on

Itís time we had a break from them
Itís time we had some leave
Iíve been living in this mess so long
It gets bigger and bigger everyday
Oh, please donít let these forms go on

You see me now a veteran
of a million tax form wars
My energyís spent at last
My support is null and void
I have used up all deductions
and Iím helpless and bereaved
The filing deadline has passed already
Did I hear you say that you do not agree?
Donít let these forms go on

Itís time I had a break from them
Send me on medical leave
I fill out forms there as well
In my own private hell
Oh, please donít let these forms go on
Donít let these forms go on
Donít let these forms go on

2. Keep on Rockin'

Years ago I had the double LP, those were the days ( I think it was a double LP ).
When I tried looking for A CD in the 1980's and 1990's, forget it
Then I got the DVD
And I the album from ITunes
I also have that piece of music that plays when Taarna is flying her winged-creature into the city

I agree awesome album, as well as classic
probably loo9k at a thesaurus for a complete list of words
