Tax time, with a wife who's dependent,
deductions this year are resplendent.
The accountant's fee
does not benefit me
and with my wage I have not been prudent.
To his credit, he found an exemption,
which may afford personal redemption.
An allowance I'll make,
then the refund I'll take...
I must say, this bloke has some gumption.
The internal works of my taxes
took some backwards and forwards of faxes.
When the rebate falls due,
there's a break over-due.
We will go where my family relaxes.
