TAXES O TEXAS
WE HAVE EVERYTHING!
Ode to Texas; Oh Texas your gracious bounty. Thank you for the beans. Thank you for the memories. I play the bugle every day at dawn and shed many tears in your honor. I am not worthy to stand upon the land of your re-branded Mexico. I feel blessed to bask in the in the hot air of your dubious deserts. Marry me oh Texas, take my hand and commit. I've never known such girth. I am just a rodeo clown in comparison, but I am devoted. I am devout to your magic, I am devout to your grains and cattle. I thrust this blade through my beating heart oh Texas, so that I can be buried within your luscious soil. Excuse me as I wilt and become one with your homogenized overflow, and slowly seep into the Gulf of Mexico, carried by time and the alms of yesteryear. I believe the lone star is never alone, for I am dutifully standing at attention at your beck and call. Reconstitute my love and slay your enemies with my added weight. Your unusual shape is the apple of my eye. Come into my sleeping bag and never leave. There is plenty of fabric to be shared between us. Many years ago we made love, my body still ringing like the liberty bell. I wait for your touch again. I'll be ready. I have duel tailpipes now. I've heard you like that sort of thing oh Texas dear.
