It's Tax Time in the U.S.A.

Cowboy Poets, Coffee, and Taxes, photo by Ross FuquaApril 17th is upon us once again -- one of the two inevitabilities in life, but at least we get two extra days to file this time around! To celebrate the tax season, Live From Elko brings you two poems, Yula Sue Whipple Hunting's "Open Letter to the IRS," recorded at the 1985 Cowboy Poetry Gathering, followed by Rodney Nelson's "Income Tax Time," recorded at the 2002 National Cowboy Poetry Gathering. Happy filing!
