Ba ba black sheep have you any money?

Did you know that this little nursery rhyme/song is about the tax system? It’s pretty nasty, actually.

Ba ba black sheep have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir, 3 bags full.
1 for the master (aka government)
1 for the dame (aka church)
1 for the little boy who lives down the lane (the farmer who owns the sheep)

It feel like no matter what you do, you can’t get ahead. And we don’t even own a sheep.
