Taxes Rise, A Little or A Lot

when property values rise,

property taxes rise.

when property values fall,

property taxes rise.

when property values stagnate,

property taxes rise.

buy a new house,

property taxes rise.

live long in an old house,

property taxes rise, just a little.

buy a new house,

property taxes rise, just a lot.

you are an old commissioner, your taxes rise, just a little

you a new resident, your taxes rise, just a lot.
