A Tank Full of Thanks



The new tax breaks

Went into effect

In January 2018


So by now

Everyone has seen


A little bit more

Pay in their checks


So the next

Logical step

In social economics


Was for gas prices

To go up overnight

By 30 cents a gallon –


Having an oil executive

In the president’s

Cabinet of secretaries


Makes sure no investor

Goes disappointed.






Ben White

Author of the books, Buddha Bastinado Blues and The Kill Gene, Ben White thought he was a poet, only to find out he is not a poet at all. He is a witness. What he writes is testimony.
