Finding Someone To Squeeze

The Chairman of the Cook County Board explains increasing cigarette taxes:
"That is the American way," Stroger replied. "And the way that it's generally done is, you find some group that's small enough where they can't beat you up, and you tax them and you tell everybody else, 'See? We didn't tax you.'"
So just relax
it's only a tax
on a small group of folks.

And if you don't smoke,
you're in the clear
with nothing to fear.

Until they swoop
on your small group.
