Lest you think high taxes rob the rich
And redistribute wealth down towards the poor,
Be aware: That very wealth from labor
Once flowed upwards towards those greedy hands.
Redistribution goes both ways, and which
Direction gets more flow is not unsure.
All the winds are in the wealthy's favor,
Yielding only to fierce-fought demands.
