“Taxation is red. Taxation is blue. Taxation is theft. They don’t care about you”

“Taxation is red. Taxation is blue. Taxation is theft. They don’t care about you” (the “red” and “blue” refer to Republicans and Democrats)  is a “Roses are red” poem variation that has been printed on several images.
         
“TAXATION IS RED, TAXATION IS BLUE, TAXATION IS THEFT, THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU” (shown on an image) was posted on iFunny on August 15, 2021. Sweatshirts with this message were sold on AMazon.com on August 21, 2021.
 
“Roses are red. Violets are blue. Taxation is theft. The state’s robbing you” is a related saying.

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