Chicago Taxes

A license is precious to have
The city uses the cover of safety
To tax the shit out of people
Not knowing a single ticket
Can ruin a teetering
Financial stability
I can attest to this
They want to squeeze every nickel
I have. Every dime I will earn
The city wants me to earn for them
Instead of taxing higher the rich
They want to suck hard
On poverty’s tit

I always had this proposal in mind
I think it is smart, I think it’s not dumb
Make the price of a ticket proportional
To the driver’s income

Traffic tickets are supposed to be punitive
How punitive is a $100 ticket
To a guy driving a tub on wheels
Bathing in riches

Standard
