Brown Envelopes.

Brown envelope.

The right hand gives the left hand takes
To compensate for past mistakes
Made by the Inland Revenue
At the years end when they review.
The taxes they demand from you.
If you are lucky you receive
A rebate that you must believe.
Because they’ve sent a cheque to you
Perhaps it’s just a pound or two
Or maybe for a goodly sum.
Any rebate is most welcome
They part with cash reluctantly
But I accept it gratefully.
