Death and Taxes
by Dorothy Parker

A little book of poems. Death is the common theme. Taxes are not mentioned. She sees death as a desirable relief from the suffering of life. By implication, she must also like taxes and socialism. Most of the poems are meaningless. A few are lame jokes. If I couldn’t do better than this, I would not allow others to read my poems.
