New Zealand Taxes Lower-Unlike U.S. Taxpayers It Does Not Fleece

It is great news from the land of 20 million sheep
The Kiwis are climbing out of global hole dug far too deep
4 percent a year growth is not shabby at all
Especially when compared to ours that falters and stalls
Their growth rate cannot be the result of having all those sheep
It could be that some taxes are not there and others are not steep
No capital gains, no payroll, top corporate rate of 28 percent, no taxes on estates
Simple, predictable, and fair--no wonder the Kiwis have raised their interest rates
Would be nice if over a banquet of legs of lamb our Reds and Blues would strive to the Kiwis imitate
And with Obama's famous pen elect to lower our taxes instead of each other continue to berate
