What justice this?

A tax to pay
After all the taxes
On all the income and property
Over all the years
Still the state claims share
Of what is left
When we die

What justice this?
What lobby of dead people
Can oppose?

Why the tax?
Some say Redistribute
Earth’s wealth
Back to all the people

But if the tax be upon
The poor and middle
What justice this?

Quietly you may hear truer:
Because we can
What justice this?
