Poor people struggle to care for themselves

So when tax day arrives, the rich pay more

This make us think taxes are based on wealth

But there is a tax that preys on the poor


Most think the lottery is just a game

An attempt to get lucky and win cash

But the odds of winning it are insane

So any smart person would surely pass


But poor people are very desperate

Their education on low odds is torn

And the rich don’t need to buy a ticket

They won the lottery when they were born


The money might fund government support

But why tax poor people for being poor
