Progressive Taxation

Rich and poor share matching fates, 

sin, as well, in matching wa-ys.

Failings don’t have diff’rent weights,

but when time comes to efface,

rich and poor pay diff’rent rates, to get clean.


Priests should treat them both the same;

hear confessions, clear the blame.

No one needs to live with shame.

Loving is God’s chosen fra-me.

Come, confess; your life reclaim, let it go.
