A Table Grace for Tax Day

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: April 19, 2009

Singing for our supper…

This day in April our favorite Uncle
taxes our patience and our reserves.
But when we itemize all our blessings,
we can't deny him what he deserves.

With all our cousins throughout the country,
we pass our Uncle's star-spangled hat.
This is an offering funding our freedom
envied in Cuba and in Iraq.

So on this Tax Day, we sing his praises
thanking our Father for Uncle Sam.
Even in lean times, we are most wealthy.
Nieces and nephews... A-mer-icans.

tune: Morning Has Broken
