Tax Notes Humor section: “Repatriation to the Tune of Revolution”

A legible reprint of my poem (a euphemism) is at Repatriation to the Tune of “Revolution”  Here is part of the ending:  “Now if in your fantasy our Uncle Sam should drown, you don’t give a damn if your schemes bring the country down.  We ought to make you pay your tax.”

Thanks to the folks at Tax Analysts for printing this in Tax Notes of July 2, 2012, page 123-24.  A friend who read a draft told me to forget submitting it to the Kenyon Review.
