“A moneyed democratic polity-
Where each alone is free to strive
To lift himself out of equality
Of being a member of the hive-
Can’t be allowed the immorality
Of taxing me into frugality.
Instead of cars, vacations, boats,
My income goes to buying votes
Of Congressmen on tax committees.
Who gives a shit how many poor
Can’t live the life of epicure?
That’s why we’ve got Atlantic Cities
And lotteries: to scratch the itch
That lets them think they’ll strike it rich.”
