So Ringo Starr just turned 75, and Beatles tunes are everywhere.
This one stood out - "Taxman" - primarily because of my own recent ... disagreements ... with said titular character.
Some might say they're a necessary evil. I suppose that's more than even half-right.
I favor paved roads, for instance.

And running water.
But did you know that some places don't have tax? For example, the United Arab Emirates (at least according to Wikipedia) - not that I want to live there.
Consequently, this month's Get Listed word list is inspired by that Beatle's lyric, and Mr. Starr. Happy birthday, good sir.
As a reminder, for those who choose to participate, please select at least 3 of the following words (reasonable variants are ok), and pen a *new* poem for the prompt. Then, publish it to your blog, and link your specific poem (not the main blog) in Mr. Linky below.
The link will remain open, so please re-visit and comment on the other poems, too - I suspect I'm not alone hoping that someone besides the taxman is paying attention...
