“Roses are red. Bacon is savory. The U.S. tax code is legalized slavery”

A “Roses are red...” poem about the U.S. tax code is:

“Roses are red,
Bacon is savory,
The U.S tax code is legalized slavery.”


The poem was posted on Twitter by Wade provan on February 21, 2017, and probably originated on an image.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet;
And so are you
