For The Abe Corporate Income Tax Pledge, A Poem

As a follow up to my post of this morning, a reader's senryu from the editorial page of my daily dead tree news delivery device:

Genzei o
kenkin de kau

Big Business
which buys tax cuts
with donated cash
- Koyano Takeshi
Higashi Yamato City

Source: Tokyo Shimbun, 14 June 2014, page 5.

So unclear are the merits of the corporate income tax cut proposal that Mr. Koyano way out there in the far eastern section of the Tokyo Metropolitan District can only think it has been put forward as the consequence of a corrupt quid-pro-quo.
