income tax

Fully tend to that which lies upon your
plate, no better, worse than any other
task. Befriend the picayune and franc d’or
tacks & bytes of commerce, and don’t bother
to swell up for any cause but love, since
indignation only speeds deduction
of the ultimate variety. Mince
the words you cannot claim; calm in action,
sort expenses and receipts of kindness.
Every payment you send out returns ten
fold in revenue. Learn to audit less
by grudge & more by comedy, so when
tax season comes around, in filing
you’ll see, nothing done with love is taxing.
