And Still More Reading

Well the Title got posted prematurely. Sorry about that. Had everything completed for the blog and was editing one word when it disappeared. I hit the space bar one too many times, it seems (cussword, cussword). So, will rewrite it:

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.
