Tax is Love

A child at Starship on a drip

A classroom of bright portraits

Tax is the road to the marae and old bach

The railway track that sings

The bridge that bridges that deep gully

Of alone in the forest or the town

Tax is love and a map

For water so its drinkable, swimmable

Alive underground in secret flowing veins

Tax is clouds that look like animals

When you lie in the park

Or pray for the climate

Tax is people thinking that other people

Need to feel this good and safe

In a house with no mould

People who believe in each othef

Giving something for the rainy day

The greater good

That kind of tax

That kind of love
