This was printed in the San Francisco Examiner, April 16, 1989.
The poet is anonymous because, to quote the IRS spokesman,
"anything that's sent to the IRS is classified as confidential".

I think that I shall never see
a tax form plain e-nough for me.
A form that I can understand
without a lawyer near at hand
to guide this poor benighted me
so I won't owe a pen-al-ty.

A form that I will not detest
or take as more than awful jest.
A form with pages I can read
and fill out ea-si-ly with speed.
Such forms weren't made for fools like me
Nor even God, who made a tree.
