April 15th was Tax Day in the U.S., as you surely know if you live here. For anyone living elsewhere, I’ll catch you up: it is a delightful holiday in which we in the United States throw some meat on the grill, fill out forms at the last minute (some of us), and go door to door collecting candy.

In honor of this deadline passed, we offer this week’s prompt: scour IRS forms & publications and write a remix poem using selected words and phrases. The challenge is to write a poem that is not about taxes. Please share the results in the comments below!
