California Grows Nevada (PGMA Sonnet)
When California raised the rate at which
it taxes the “rich” it assured one thing.
In Nevada cash registers will ring.
The small businesses won’t just stay and bitch.
Some are bound to stay; many though will switch
to states nearby where taxes have less sting.
These states will see a relative upswing.
Increasing taxes simply won’t enrich.
Thanks Wilson, for a few more jobs right here
in Nevada, it’s appreciated.
Though Dems seem to think it’s complicated,
it’s really not, to me it is quite clear.
When their quest to tax is finally sated
We could end-up overpopulated.
